KIQQ at 100.3 FM was known as K-100 FM in the early seventies. The station was originally owned by Golden West Broadcasting as KMPC FM, which became KFOX. The call letters changed to KIQQ in 1972 as the station aired a light version of the top 40 format. The Drake-Chenault consulting team had been dropped by RKO, as it signed a deal with KIQQ. By the fall of 1973 the station billed itself as K-100 and featured several personalities from KHJ, such as Robert W. Morgan, the Real Don Steele, Billy Pearl, Jerry Butler and Humble Harve.

In the early eighties the station flipped to the automated satellite AC service known as Transtar's Format 41. In 1989 the station was purchased by Westwood One and emerged as KQLZ Pirate Radio. The station went through a series of other changes such as r&b station B-100, r&b hits and Motown oldies as Mega-100 then KRBV 100.3 The Vibe in 2006. It became triple A station KSWD The Sound in 2008 and then was sold in 2017 to Educational Media Services, which flipped the format to religious as KKLQ.
