History[edit]

KAUS' transmitter site is adjacent to its studios south of Austin. It originally began broadcasting with the call letters of KAAL and housed the earliest incarnation of the television station known today as KAAL (formerly KAUS-TV) in its rural Austin studios. KAUS AM had been on the air since at least the mid 60's with a pop/top 40 format and the TV station was KMMT, an ABC affiliate.

The radio station's notable personality is "Champagne" Duane Germaine whose tenure at the station has surpassed all others.
