New Radio Station in Minot –

in 1968 an article in the July 11th newspaper – The FCC approved the construction  on a new radio station in Minot . Dick Gehl, the station manager, said the studios will be located in the Clarence Parker Hotel. The call letters will be KTYN – the Station will sign on air daily at 6 am and sign off at dusk at 1430 on the AM dial. The transmitter will be located six miles south of Minot and KTYN will have a range of about 100 miles in all directions. In 1972 KTYN was billing itself as Dakota’s Country Giant … KTYN is no longer in operation – the signal is “dark” – just not being used at this time
