History[edit]

KBFM started out with a broad-based Top 40 direction when it debuted the format on the air in 1974. But in 2004 they shifted to Rhythmic Top 40, thus putting them in competition with KBTQ (which would later exit the format in October 2005). KBFM has been previously known as "B104" and "Hot B104" during its Top 40 days.
