They simulcast a Mainstream Urban radio format and are owned by Cumulus Media. KWIN is licensed to Lodi and KWNN is licensed to Turlock. The studios and offices are in Stockton. The transmitter for KWIN is off California State Route 99 at Cora Post Road in Lodi.[1] The transmitter for KWNN is off Geer Road in Hughson.[2]

History[edit]

KTUR (later KCEY), signed on in 1949. In 1977, when an FM station was added, a new building went up. K-MIX 98 was automated adult contemporary with DJs recording their shows to give the impression of live broadcasts.[3] In 1995, KMIX-FM became KWNN, simulcasting Rhythmic CHR KWIN.[4]

In late 2010, KWIN and KWNN switched format from Rhythmic CHR to Mainstream Urban.
