The CBS Radio outlet broadcasts at 94.1 MHz with its main transmitter operating at 73 kW effective radiated power and its three auxiliary transmitters operating at 57 kW, 55 kW and 53 kW ERP. All four of its transmitters are located near Issaquah, Washington on Tiger Mountain, and operates from studios in Seattle near Lake Union.

Its legacy on FM radio dates back to 1961, when it signed on as KOL-FM. The frequency has seen both Progressive Rock (1968-1975) and Beautiful Music (1975-1978 as KEUT) formats, before flipping to its current format on February 1, 1978.

KMPS started its life as a country station in 1975, as KMPS-AM 1300. It was a direct challenger to then-dominant country station KAYO 1150 AM. Today, it is one of two Country outlets targeting the Puget Sound region; KKWF (100.7 The Wolf) is the other.

Recently KMPS plays newer country music and artists.
