WKKO is a commercial FM radio station in Toledo, Ohio broadcasting on 99.9 MHz with a country music format. The 99.9 MHz spot on the FM dial in Toledo, Ohio was originally populated by WTRT, known as one of the nation's first FM-band Top-40 format radio stations. In the late 1960's the station became WKLR, playing soul music, later known as 'Kooler 99'. During the summer of 1981 the station changed to country, kept the WKLR call letters, and changed its 'name' to K100. During this period it was known as 'The Chicken' in reference to its mascot, a giant whole broiled chicken dressed in seasonal clothing.
