KIST-FM first signed on in February 1998 as KLDZ.[4] It was the FM counterpart to KIST (1340 AM, now KCLU). KLDZ aired an oldies format, calling itself "Cool Oldies 107.7".

In May 1998, Citicasters, Inc., part of Jacor Communications, purchased KIST and KLDZ for $1.5 million.[5] The AM station changed its call sign to KXXT and the KIST call letters were shifted over to 107.7 FM.[6] In May 1999, Jacor merged with Clear Channel Communications, which would own KIST-FM until 2007.

In March 2000, Cumulus Media-owned KKSB in Santa Barbara adopted a contemporary hit radio (CHR) format. In response, Clear Channel flipped KIST-FM to a top 40 outlet branded "KISS 107 FM"; the station featured on-air personality Rick Dees from sister station KIIS-FM in Los Angeles during morning drive.[7][8] Clear Channel won the head-to-head CHR battle with Cumulus as KKSB flipped to oldies within two years.[9] However, on September 8, 2004, KIST-FM changed to a modern rock format with the branding "FM 107.7".[10]

On January 11, 2007, Clear Channel Communications sold all of its radio stations in Santa Barbara, including KIST-FM, to Rincon Broadcasting for $17.3 million.[11][12] Five days later, KIST-FM's format was changed to regional Mexican under the branding of "Radio Bronco".

On December 15, 2009, KIST-FM changed its call letters to KQIE.[6] In less than two months, on February 10, 2010, the station reverted to KIST-FM. On July 20, KIST-FM again changed its call letters to KFYZ.[6] That switch was also temporary, as KFYZ restored the KIST-FM call sign on September 10. The KFYZ call letters were transferred to its sister station at 94.5 FM on December 23, 2010 when that station flipped to a top 40 format.
