Biographical Sketch/Agency History

History: The Cedar Rapids Gazette Company signed on KCRG radio in 1947. In 1953, the company bought stock in television and the call letters for the radio and television stations were temporarily changed to KCRI. After the Gazette Company bought out the television company, the call letters returned to KCRG. The radio station used to play country music and then switched to a news/talk format. In 2006, the radio station was sold to another local broadcaster. The call letters were then changed to KGYM. Today, the radio station broadcasts sports and local talk shows, such as The Gym Class.

Timeline: 1947- Present
