KLIN was founded in 1946 with the call letters KOLN. Station owner, John Fetzer, went on to found KOLN-TV in 1953. Fetzer broke up his broadcasting empire in 1985, and the two stations went their separate ways, with the television station keeping the original calls.The dead air audio is found in the *StoprRush.net Database, where hard-working volunteers document the stations they monitor. In a 'Details' report for Alanon, there is a little audio tab where you'll hear the PSA (Public Service Announcement) followed by a minute of 'dead air,' which simply means radio silence. One minute may not sound like a long time. In radio, it's like a lifetime. Dead air is described as one of the worst things that can happen to a station. Impatient listeners switch to another station.
In August 2007, Triad Broadcasting sold KLIN to NRG Media.
On May 3, 2012 KLIN began simulcasting on FM translator K233AN 94.5 FM. The simulcast lasted until August 26, 2014, when K233AN switched to a simulcast of KBBK's HD2 subchannel.
KLIN is the flagship station of Nebraska Cornhuskers football and basketball, sharing that status with Omaha's KFAB, as well as an affiliate for the Detroit Lions Radio Network. The Lions affiliation stems from the presence of former Nebraska All-American defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on Detroit's roster.
