The station is located in Topeka, Kansas, where it is licensed. The station is currently owned by Alpha Media. 2 Country Legends 106.9 Miracle Marathon for Kids Radiothon (2006-2015) KTPK signed on its country format in 1974. In 1997, Kansas Capital Broadcasting, which also owned KTKA-TV until it closed, bought the company. They made several changes like broadcasting Kansas State University football and basketball games until 2005, adopted the name "Twister 106.9" in 1998, and then "K-Country" in 2002. In 2005, KTPK was sold to JMJ Broadcasting Company, Inc for $5.7 million. When JMJ Broadcasting Company, Inc. took over, they no longer wanted sports, so they dropped the KSU football games, and changed the station's name to "Country Legends 106.9", as the format shifted from contemporary country music to classic country. In mid-2006, KTPK soared in the ratings, and as of the latest ratings available (Spring 2012 and again in the Spring of 2013) they were rated #1 in the Topeka market for total listeners aged 12 and up. On September 1, 2015, Alpha Media took ownership of KTPK. On the morning of November 21, 2018, KTPK dropped its classic country format and began stunting with Christmas music as "Christmas 106.9", which pointed to the station possibly flipping to a new format after the holiday season. This might have been partially due to its drop in ratings from a 10.2 audience share during the Spring 2017 Nielsen Audio ratings to a 5.6 share in the Spring 2018 ratings.

KTPK's Marlena signing off after 41 years behind the mic Marlena Adkison has spent the past forty-plus years playing country music, but now she says it's time for something new. "I'm going to turn 63 later this year and I decided that's a good time to travel. I have a little money in the bank and decided 41 years of my life is enough," said Marlena. The 2007 Kansas Country Music Hall of Fame inductee says there is a lot of work behind the scenes that she won't miss, but there's a lot of other things she will. "The music I can turn on at anytime, but the people. There's been a lot of interesting people and a lot of different places, and the activities are always fun, but it will be nice to be able to sleep in late." "The technology has changed drastically. It's gotten to the point where it's challenging to me now. I'm kind of glad to be leaving that part behind." Marlena joined the KTPK staff shortly after graduating from K-State in 1976, and quickly worked her way up the station ladder. In the mid-80s, station management promoted her to program director and host of KTPK's morning show with Lynn Higbee, where the two became very close friends. Their daily morning broadcast was a staple in the Capital City for ten years, until it came to an abrupt end one spring day at an east Topeka cafe. "So, he went to a few garage sales and stopped in there after lunch. He was sitting there eating when he had a stroke and passed away," she recalled. Marlena returned to the airwaves the following day to relay the tragic news.
