signed on the air in December, 1975, under the ownership of Bill Reier.
In 1988, the station was sold to Citadel Communications.
In 1996, the station was sold back to Bill Reier. The station operates on 1090 kHz,
with 5,000 Watts, non-directional days, and
utilizes a 5-tower directional array at night. The station often

This Gates console is the original, installed in 1975. Over the years, this studio has had
turntables, cart machines, reel tape machines, Steve Campbell's Darth, and

New KBOZ studio under construction, March, 2004. The R-90 console has been temporarily set on the counter
to evaluate various layouts. The video monitor arm risers were fabricated by Norco in Missoula.
Final configuration of the KBOZ studio. The big console, three video monitors, three keyboards, and telephone
control console provide great flexibility along with seeming complexity. When Dave Visscher says he is
overwhelmed by his new studio, this is why.
