HistoryEdit

The station was founded November 21, 1994, under the call sign K32DZ, by Media Manics Incorporated of Enid, and managed by Charles D. Pearson. Its call sign changed to KXOK-LP on November 23, 2001.[2] Rex Faulkner began managing the station in 2002.[3] In 2002, the station built a new studio in Oakwood Mall, where it produced a local newscast and held auctions. Ownership was officially transferred to Faulkner on January 22, 2004.[4] The station remained in Faulkner's ownership until his death in 2005,[5] and was managed by Dixie Meyer, executrix of the Estate of Rex Faulkner until its sale to ME3 Communications in 2007. On July 8, 2009, the station's call sign changed again to KXOK-LD.

In 2004, the station filed a lawsuit against the University Network[6] for breach of contract.
