Call sign meaning
KSPW debuted on the air on February 21, 1988 as KJLR. By July 1988 it adopted an AC format as KLTO, which lasted until 1999 and changed calls to KMXH. In April 2001, KMXH flipped to Rhythmic Top 40 and adopted the KSPW calls. The station patterned the format after sister station KQCH/Omaha. And like KQCH, KSPW would evolve to Top 40/CHR by 2003 and has been in this direction since then.
Journal Communications and the E. W. Scripps Company announced on July 30, 2014 that the two companies would merge to create a new broadcast company under the E.W. Scripps Company name that owned the two companies' broadcast properties, including KSPW. The transaction was completed in 2015, pending shareholder and regulatory approvals. Scripps exited radio in 2018; the Springfield stations went to SummitMedia in a four-market, $47 million deal completed on November 1, 2018.
