KAND began in 1937 as a Variety/Entertainment station on 1310 kHz but 10 years later moved to AM 1340 and has maintained its variety format until the 1980s when they made a slow transition to Country music. The original station owner was J.C. West, who also owned the Wolf Brand (canned) Chili plant in Corsicana. West had applied for callsign WOLF, but the Federal Communications Commission wouldn't permit it due to the fact that the WOLF call letters are currently in use on Syracuse, New York's AM and FM stations.
In March 2008 Yates Communications announced FCC approval to buy KAND. Although the 1,000 watt station doesn't cover the immediate Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, KAND will be streaming online to North Texas listeners with a Real COuntry format that offers programs currently not available on Dallas.
On July 9, 2010; Yates decided to sell this station to New Century Broadcasting
