95.5 FM first signed on the air in 1972 as KILA. 95.5 was the original home for Christian KILA from 1972 until 1985. When KILA moved to another frequency, the short lived KYYX 95.5 FM began. It was another country format specifically designed to compete with KFMS (101.9).

KYYX never was able to compete with KFMS and floundered after two years. {1985-1987} and 95.5 switched to Hot AC KLSQ (Q95) in 1987.

In 1989, the station switched calls to KWNR and was known as "Winner 95.5". "Winner 95.5 KWNR lasted about a year before finally switching to "New Country 95.5" in September 1990.

In 2004, "New Country" was dropped and the station was known as 95.5 KWNR. The "New Country" label came back in the summer of 2006.
