The station, which signed on the air on March 3, 1963, was part of a simulcast with FM sister KUMU during its days as a beautiful music outlet throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. More recently it was adult standards, and later on, sports talk as an affiliate of Sporting News Radio. In 2010 KUMU-AM once again became a simulcast of KUMU-FM. On August 2, 2010, Ohana Broadcast Company, LLC sold KUMU-AM to Blow Up, LLC, for $250,000(USD).[1] On September 30, 2010 the call sign was changed to KHKA and the station started broadcasting a sports talk format. In April 2013, KHKA rebranded as NBC Sports Radio 1500AM.

On January 1, 2019, KHKA became a affiliate of CBS Sports Radio as a result of NBC Sports Radio discontinuing its full time network programming.
