History

The KITS call letters came about in 1983 when the station adopted Programming Consultant, Mike Joseph's Hot Hits Top-40 music format. The station was referred to as "Hot Hits KITS" and followed the formula of a very short song playlist with heavy repetition and fast-talking air personalities. A modest ratings success, "Hot Hits KITS" could not top then-Top 40, KMEL-FM in the ratings. During this time, evening DJ, Steve Masters began experimenting with modern rock on his evening show. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and after the demise of modern rock KQAK and in 1985, the station began a musical shift between top-40 and "rock of the eighties". By October 1986, KITS completely dropped all Top-40 pop artists in favor of the modern rock format, and switched monikers from "Hot Hits" KITS to Live 105 under Programming Director, Richard Sands and Music Director Steve Masters.

During this era, very few stations programmed modern-rock, and Live 105 became a major influence and sole source of exposure for such artists to the San Francisco Bay Area. After numerous years of success, ratings began to dip during the late 90's, and on March 11, 1997, owner Entercom sold the station to Infinity Broadcasting, which later became CBS Radio. Infinity's San Jose Alternative-formatted property, KOME, had great success in the ratings and managed to even beat Live 105 with the Howard Stern morning show and a very guitar-driven music format, as opposed to the more British, euro-based music Live 105 was founded on. After the sale to Infinity, KOME's management and a couple of on-air personalities were brought over to Live 105.
