91X was born in 1978 as a rock station owned by John Lynch of Noble Broadcasting. In 1983 the format switched to "Rock of the 80s," consulted by Rick Carroll of KROQ. The first PD of the new 91X was Jim Gelaro and the first morning show was the incumbant Russ T. Nails. Within a year the new PD was Max Tolkoff. In 1987 Trip Reeb became PD and then left two years later to become KROQ's GM. Kevin Stapleford took over as PD and night talent Michael Halloran became MD. Bryan Jones did mornings off and on from 1984 to 1996.

After Stapleford resigned as PD in 1996, Halloran moved up to the position. Later that year ownership changed from Noble Broadcasting to Jacor. Shortly after the transition Halloran left and was replaced by Brian Schock, who was an original air talent when 91X first went alternative. In 1999 Jacor merged with Clear Channel. The station was spun off by Clear Channel in July 2005 to Finest City Broadcasting, Inc.
