KPOP changed in 1986 to 93 Rock and experienced a few rocky years in
the ratings. 93 Rock finally caught up with KZAP in the ratings by 1988. For the next few years it was a see-saw battle
as 93 Rock, under the direction of PD Judy McNutt and MD Pamela Roberts, catered to a younger rock audience while KZAP
moved toward adults who had grown up with the station. But it became obvious by January 1992 that KRXQ had won the war when KZAP flipped to country and became KNCI-FM (only to change in a swap to KRAK-FM two years later). The air line-up would remain solid for years at KRXQ featuring Pat Martin in middays, Charlie Thomas in afternoons and Pamela Roberts in evenings. KZAP had consistency with Bob Keller in middays and the Godfather Bob Gallie in afternoons. Other KZAP personalities of the era included Bill Prescott in mornings, who
was succeeded by Pat Still. Bob Keller eventually ended up on The Eagle, the Godfather went to Cool 101 and Pat Still went
to KWOD and then KNCI. In the early to mid-nineties Laura Ingle was a popular evening voice on KRXQ. Being the host of the local music show,
she was also well-known by local bands.
