History[edit]

The station signed on the air in 1994 as KJWL with an adult standards music format. The station later evolved towards soft adult contemporary, and then adult album alternative.

On January 2, 2017, after stunting on New Year's Day with a loop of "Right Now" by Van Halen (as "K-Jewel" moved to KJZN and shifted back to Soft AC), KJWL flipped to Top 40/CHR as "99.3 Now FM".[1] On January 5, 2017, KJWL changed their call letters to KJZN. [2] On January 18, 2017, KJZN changed their call letters to KWDO.[3]
