KYXY is a commercial radio station owned by Audacy, Inc. KYXY is licensed to San Diego, California with its studios in the city’s Stonecrest area. Its transmitter site is in La Jolla, on the KGTV Tower which it shares with KGTV and several other San Diego FM stations.
KYXY first signed on in 1960 as KFMX. It changed its callsign to KYXY (pronounced “Kick-see”) in the late 1960s after being bought by Walter Nelskog, who also owned stations KIXI in Seattle and KYXI in Portland. The station has kept the same KYXY call letters ever since. It was an independent FM station, carrying a middle of the road music format, which was described as “Good Music.” KYXY transitioned to an adult contemporary format in late 1970s and has mostly stayed with the format. However, the station has become more upbeat within the last decade in an effort to attract younger listeners.
