1960-1976 - KTOP-FM - Country "K-Top"
KTOP-FM was the original Topeka country powerhouse. However, KTOP-FM faded quickly after the sign-on of KTPK in 1974.
1976-1978 - KDVV - Christian "K-Dove"
KDVV broadcast a Christian format for a couple of years.
1978-1989 - KDVV - Top 40/Rock "V-100"
KDVV flipped to top 40 in 1978, keeping the call letters from the previous format. The focus wavered back and forth between pop and rock.
1989-1996 - KDVV - Album Rock "V-100.3"
Westwood One's AOR feed provided much of the programming, I believe.
1996-1998 - KDVV - Classic Rock "V-100"
KDVV returned to locally-produced programming around 1996, giving Topeka its first classic rock station. Cumulus bought KDVV in 1998 from family-owned Midland Broadcasting.
1998-current - KDVV - Album Rock "V-100"
KDVV updated its format to a more current AOR playlist in 1998. The station has made it all the way to #2 behind WIBW-FM in the overall Topeka ratings. The loss of KLZR's modern rock format helped KDVV. KDVV broadcasted KU sports from 2000-2006. Kansas State Wildcat sports moved to KDVV in 2006. Around 2008, KDVV began simulcasting on KDVB (96.9 mHz), licensed to Effingham, Kansas. In 2013, KDVV picked up the syndicated Bob & Tom morning show.
