History edit

The station signed on the air on April 24, 1973; 51 years ago (1973-04-24). It was originally a daytimer station, required to go off the air at night because 1540 AM is a clear channel frequency. The call sign was KISA and it offered a Filipino format. It was owned by Manayan Enterprises.[2]

It changed its call letters to KREA in 2000, beginning its Korean format.
