History

KRWM, whose legacy dates back to 1964 as KBRO-FM and whose formats included Top 40 (1964–1972), country music (1972–1984, changed call letters to KWWA in 1979), second run at top 40 (1984–1987 as KHIT), new age (1987–1990) as KNUA ("Music for a New Age"), and smooth jazz KKNW ("Sound FM") (1990-1992), flipped formats to its current format in August 1992 (the KRWM calls were adopted on October 26).

When the station first started with its AC format, the station competed against KLTX, known as "95.7 K-Lite". At first, it looked that the station did not have a promising future and was about to change formats; however, when KLTX unexpectedly flipped formats in 1994, KRWM picked up most of KLTX's former listeners, and ratings increased dramatically.

Up until mid-July 2014, KRWM was also the flagship station of Delilah Rene's nighttime syndicated program for Premiere Radio, which originates from the station's studios (she lives in Seattle). Prior to going nationwide, Delilah's program was a regular nightly feature on KRWM. Today, Delilah's program only airs in Washington state on KISC-FM in Spokane. From mid-November to December 26 of every year, KRWM airs all-Christmas music with its website streaming all-Christmas music from November 1st to mid-November. They are one of two stations in Seattle to play continuous Christmas music, the other being KCMS-FM.

In 2013, Sandusky Radio sold its radio holdings in Seattle and Phoenix, Arizona to Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc.
