KOOK: KOOK Radio 970 Billings came on the air March 20, 1951. They retined the KOOK "cook" call letters until November 4, 1985 when they changed them to KBIT. On March 1, 1988 970 became KCTR and simulcast the KCTR-FM format. April 11, 1994 they switched to KDWG "The Dog" and then on April 17, 1998 the call letters were changed to KBUL "The Bull" with a country music format until September 10, 2001 (yes, the day before 9/11) when the format was changed to all news. The KBUL call letters remain, but now "The Bulletin" is their slogan. Studios were either at the transmitter site (during nighttime power pattern) or downtown in the KOOK building along with KOOK-TV (see KOOK-TV below). The photo of the 7002 South Billings Boulevard studios and towers is from 1975. A more recent photo of those towers can be see above under the KBUL call letters. The billboard is from 1977 promoting the then morning team.
