    After the end of of a format somewhat resembling AOR, KSFT simulcasted Top 40 KKJO 1550 for a while.

    1980-1988 - KSFT - Country - Licensed to St. Joseph, MO
    KSFT changed hands multiple times in the 1980s, winding up in the hands St. Joseph Radio Limited Partnership by the mid-1980s. Cardinal Communications bought the station in 1988.

    1988-2000 - KKJO - Hot Adult Contemporary "K-Jo 105" - Licensed to St. Joseph, MO
    The format moved from 1550 kHz on October 3, 1988. KKJO always had a wide playlist for an Adult Top 40 station. The 105.1 frequency could usually be heard in Kansas City. Eagle Communications bought the station in the late 1990s. In a move designed to move in the 105.1 to Kansas City itself, KKJO changed frequencies to 105.5 (causing several other stations to move) in April 2000.

    2001-2004 - KFME-FM - 80s/Hot Adult Contemporary "E-FM/E-105"
    More than a year after KKJO moved to 105.5, KFME finally signs on with something we didn't expect. Jesscom Broadcasting and Frank Copsidas put on a format that was part 80s/90s pop hits, but with about two or three new songs each hour. It wasn't quite 80s or 90s hits, and it wasn't quite Hot AC. The number of currents had gradually increased, and KFME began reporting as a Hot AC station in May 2003. Susquehanna owned a share of the station too. Once Susquehanna took full control, "Retro to Right Now" became "Retro to about 1999".

    2004-current - KCJK - 70s-00s Hits "105-1 Jack FM"
    Oddly, the new format greatly resembles the old format. The next flavor of the month format came to Kansas City in October 2004. "Jack FM" uses the liner "we play what we want," with a rather irreverent voice talent that's actually quite amusing. The format is generally popular, upbeat hits from the 1970s-1990s, but as the years went by, Jack added more 2000s music. Ratings spiked immediately, then leveled off a little. The station started jockless, but has since added live talent during the day. Cumulus took over the station in May 2006.
