The public radio station broadcast from Montana State University or MSU (not to be confused with the other MSU, Michigan State University). Most programs are hosted by students and members of the community, and thus the station caters to many tastes.

The call letters KGLT refer to the station's broadcast location in Bozeman, Montana. The K indicates that the station is west of the Mississippi River, and the letters GLT serve as an abbreviation for Gallatin County in Montana.
