KKRB broadcasts a soft adult contemporary music format.[1][2] Syndicated programming on the station includes The John Tesh Radio Show as both a morning show and an evening program.[3]

HistoryEdit

This station received its original construction permit for a new FM station broadcasting with 3,000 watts of power on a frequency of 95.9 MHz from the Federal Communications Commission on November 30, 1982.[4] The new station was assigned the KKRB call sign by the FCC on February 14, 1983.[5] KKRB received its license to cover from the FCC on December 12, 1983.[6]

The station filed an application with the FCC in July 1984 requesting a change in assigned frequency from 95.9 to 106.9 MHz and an increase in signal power from 3,000 watts to 43,200 watts.[7] The FCC issued a new construction permit authorizing the changes on September 4, 1984.[7] The station received a license to cover these changes on March 18, 1988.[8]

As part of an internal corporate reorganization, Wynne Broadcasting Company, Inc., filed an application in November 2003 to transfer the broadcast license for KKRB to a new company called Wynne Enterprises, LLC. The transfer was approved by the FCC on December 10, 2003, and the transaction was consummated on March 1, 2004.[9]

KKRB was honored as "Adult Contemporary Radio Station of the Year" by New Music Weekly magazine at its annual New Music Awards in 2006, 2007, and 2008.[10][11][12] KKRB program director Randy Adams was also honored as "Adult Contemporary Program Director of the Year" in 2006, 2007, and 2008.[10][11][12]
