KPLX Year-by-Year:

1998: Another long-running station made a change in July, as eighteen year old country outlet KPLX dropped it’s “K-Plex” image and re-emerged as “The Wolf”. The fresh coat of paint led KPLX back into the top ten after a year’s absence and helped put the squeeze on KYNG (Young Country), which made its final top ten appearance in the Winter book.

1999: In less than a year on the air, the re-christened KPLX (The Wolf) helped force KYNG to shelve its "Young Country" moniker in favor of "Superstar Country", only to reclaim "Young Country" seven months later. KYNG's state of decline continued - the station only lasted four months into the new millenium - allowing the Wolf to focus solely on country front-runner KSCS. The decades-old KSCS/KPLX country battle swapped leaders in the Fall book, when KPLX bested KSCS for the first time in over a decade.

2001: While formats were being shuffled, and new station emerged at the top of the rankings. Only the seventh different station to claim the number one spot in the near three decades of combined DFW ratings, KPLX (The Wolf) unseated KKDA-FM (K104) in the Fall book, ending the urban giant's seven-book number one streak. Another broken streak of note: The Winter 2001 survey was be the first in the history of the Dallas/Fort Worth ratings in which KVIL did not finish in the top ten. Won Country Station of the Year by the National Association of Broadcasters.

2002: KKDA once again vaulted into the top spot in the Dallas/FW markets in three of the four
rating periods. Won the CMA Radio Station Award for a Major Market.

2003: KPLX plays second fiddle once again to monster station KKDA. KPLX was nominated in the Major Market of the Year category by th National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). It won Country Station of the Year. Cody Alan wins Air Personaility of the Year Award by the Academy of Country Music. Paul Williams is named among th top ten program directors of 2003 by Radio Ink.

2004: Major gains by new station KBFB and a resurgent WBAP resulted in KPLX slipping briefly into fourth place overall in the D/FW market. Paul Williams was named Top Country Programmer this year.

2006: Don Halyburton, Senior Vice Presdient, is inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame.
