The Indie-Verse is an internet radio station based in Dallas, Texas serving the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex as well as all of the United States through its internet presence with a diverse alternative & indie music format. It also broadcasts on KJKK 100.3 HD-3 (HD Radio needed) and it's under ownership of CBS Radio. The name is a portmanteau of "Indie", short for "independence" or "independent"; and "Universe".

History

The Indie-Verse began as an internet-only station on May 9, 2008, broadcasting primarily an indie rock music playlist. Then on July that year, CBS Radio gave the station staff the green light to broadcast from an FM HD frequency on KLLI (now KRLD-FM) 105.3 HD2.[1] The duration on its former FM dial didn't last long as it was replaced by a simulcast from KRLD NewsRadio 1080 AM on June 9, 2009. This replacement happened because of the new Microsoft Zune player's feature: which allows listeners to hear HD stations as well as their MP3s, but, turns out, won't be able to tune into the AM dials. So, in order to make sure KRLD 1080's news feed still got out to the ever-evolving listenership, CBS bumped The Indie-Verse in order to make room. However, The Indie-Verse continues to maintain its online presence.[2]

As of 2010, The Indie-Verse has returned to the radio airwaves, this time on KJKK 100.3 HD-3.
