History[edit]

KBNO signed on in 1948 as KTLN on 990 kHz. It moved to 1150 kHz in 1951. It moved to its current frequency in 1954.

In September 1999, Zee Ferrufino sold the station to Crawford Broadcasting, which changed the call letters. In late 2000, Ferrufino's company, Latino Communications, bought station KVOD from Clear Channel for a reported $3.3 million. Ferrufino renamed the station, to KBNO, said that he planned to rehire numerous former KBNO personalities to play what he called "Mexican regional music," among other styles.[1]
