KZMT (101.1 FM) is a radio station licensed to serve Helena, Montana. The station is owned by Kevin Terry and licensed to the Montana Radio Company, LLC.[2] It airs a Classic rock music format.[3]

The station was assigned the KZMT call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on October 8, 1984.[1]


In August 2000, a deal was reached for KZMT to be acquired by Commonwealth Communications LLC from STARadio Corp. as part of a nine-station deal with a total reported sale price of $7.5 million.[4]

In October 2003, a deal was reached for KZMT to be acquired by Cherry Creek Radio from Commonwealth Communications LLC as part of a 24-station deal with a total reported sale price of $41 million.[5]

In 2014, KZMT dropped the Dial Global syndicated classic rock programming in favor of locally produced programming, with the only exception being the regional syndication of Classic rock sister (Z100 Missoula[6]) morning show The Brian & Chris Show.

On April 5, 2017, Montana Radio Company announced it would acquire Cherry Creek Media's Helena stations.[7][8] The purchase was consummated on July 28, 2017.
