Our History Founded in 2007, KLIK Radio is the principle program of Fort Collins Youth Broadcasting, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Fort ... See more Collins, Colorado. The organization was founded by four high school sophomores attending Poudre High School. Originally envisioned as an FM radio station, prior to starting an Internet radio station, the organization's board of directors extensively pursued an FM radio license. FCYB applied for a construction permit to build a small FM radio station in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, with the ultimate goal of then purchasing a translator station to broadcast to Fort Collins. Another party applied to operate an FM station in Red Feather, and the board of directors was offered $3,500 to surrender its application. They accepted the offer, which funded KLIK Radio's first 6 months of operating expenses. Over the course of its existance, KLIK has worked with over 100 different students from 5 different high schools in the region, including Loveland schools. It has received recognition from both the Coloradoan and the Fort Collins Now. Equipment purchases are funded primarily by grants from local private foundations and national youth grants. * February 2007 - Idea is spawned. * March 2007 - Initial board of directors determined and meet. * April 2007 - Fort Collins Youth Broadcasting, Inc. founded with Secretary of State. * May 2007 - FM radio research continues using only the tools on the FCC web site. * June 2007 - FM radio research continues. We're now starting to realize that we'd have to purchase a radio station or otherwise relocate a station to squeeze a new station on the dial in Fort Collins. * July 2007 - Research into commercial radio, translators, and other alternative options to a new full-service station are evaluated. * End of 2007 - New FM station is filed for in Red Feather Lakes, with the hopes of purchasing a translator station in Fort Collins. Paperwork for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status is sent to the IRS. Unbranded Internet radio stream picks up a few listeners. * January 2008 - Wren Communications pays $3,000 to FCYB in exchange for withdrawing our FM application. IRS grants FCYB its tax-exempt status. We sign a year-long lease on the Green Studio. * February 2008 - The moniker KLIK Radio is created, and we begin broadcasting with this new name. * April 2008 - KLIK Radio appears in the Coloradoan. * May 2008 - Bohemian Foundation gives FCYB a $2,250 grant for studio equipment.

This grant isn't received until 2009, though. * May 2009 - KLIK Radio relocates from Green Studio to a brand new building on Cherry St. * September 2009 - Control over KLIK Radio is officially transferred to the second generation of young administrators.
