KIYS (101.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) format serving the Jonesboro, Arkansas, area. The station is currently owned by East Arkansas Broadcasters.

KIYS broadcast in the HD Radio format.[1]

History[edit]

This format was previously located at 101.9 KIYS in the Jonesboro, Arkansas market. On September 10, 2010, the 101.9 KIYS frequency relocated to Crawfordsville, Arkansas where it began to target the Memphis area as "101.9 Radio Now". While located in Jonesboro, the station was CHR as "Kiss FM", owned by Clear Channel, but operated by East Arkansas Broadcasters under a local marketing agreement (LMA). After the 101.9 signal was moved to Crawfordsville, East Arkansas Broadcasting acquired KRLW, which had been at 106.3, and moved the frequency over to 101.7 and relaunched it as "101.7 Kiss FM."
