In May 2011, due to mounting debts, the decision was made to make pledge drive goal based rather than for a set two week period. Pledge drive now continues until the station goal is met in full.
On August 6, 2011, KNON changed its mission statement to better reflect what the station really does. The new mission statement of KNON is: “The mission of KNON is to be the Voice of The People in the Dallas area. We provide unique programming to reflect the diversity of the entire metroplex community.” The Agape Broadcasting Foundation board was also expanded to include more seats, and for the first time, two “DJ Board Member” seats were created.
In 2011 KNON was named best FM station in Dallas by both The Dallas Observer and D Magazine.
