6KY was started by AWA (Amalgamated Wireless Australia). The station has had a number of owners. In 1968, it was bought by News Ltd, the owner of Sunday Times, Western Australia's Sunday newspaper. This was followed by Channel 9 ownership. With the takeover in 1984 by Bond Media, 6KY was sold back to AWA.

With the arrival on commercial FM, 6KY had to look for a new audience. In the 1980s it experimented with talk and easy listening format.
