Based in Yankton, SD, Riverfront Broadcasting, LLC, is the culmination of years of radio sales and management experience and tech-based expertise. In 2004, Doyle and Carolyn Becker purchased KNCY-AM and KNCY-FM in Nebraska City, NE and started a family-owned and operated company that was ready to expand.
KYNT-AM and KKYA-FM in Yankton, SD, KORN-AM and KQRN-FM in Mitchell, SD, and KCCR-AM and KLXS in Pierre, SD were purchased in 2008. In 2009, Riverfront was given the chance to purchase a construction permit from the FCC for the city of Hartington, NE, and in 2010, KDAM signed-on and expanded the Riverfront Broadcasting property inventory to nine stations.
In 2012, Riverfront was awarded the construction permit for Murdo, SD from the FCC and that station is now KCCR-FM (Capital City Rock), and went on the air in 2014.
In 2013, Riverfront Broadcasting LLC sold KNCY-AM, and KNCY-FM, and then purchased KZKK in Huron, SD in 2014 and relocated the stations to their Mitchell market and the power was increased from 6K to 100K. The station went on the air in 2015 as KORN Country.
In 2015 Riverfront Broadcasting, LLC expanded into Iowa and Riverfront Broadcasting of Iowa was formed and purchased 6 radio stations in north central Iowa in the cities of Algona KLGZ-FM and KLGA-AM, Boone KWBG-AM, Webster City KQWC-FM and KQWZ-AM, and Humboldt KHBT-FM. These were soon joined by Riverfront Broadcasting Of Keokuk Inc. in 2016 with the purchase of KOKX-AM and WCEZ-FM in the Southeast corner of Iowa.
These stations in a variety of towns have allowed Riverfront Broadcasting to cement their position as a family-owned company specializing in small communities while building the economic base in those communities and promoting a positive attitude through their work with the local businesses and organizations.
