History[edit]

This station received its original construction permit for a new 1,000 watt daytime-only AM signal from the Federal Communications Commission on October 11, 1984.[1] The new station was assigned the call letters KCKX by the FCC in 1984.[2] In January 1986, permit holder Elizabeth I. Wamsley applied to transfer the construction permit to Azelco, Inc. The transfer was approved by the FCC on May 27, 1986, and the transaction was consummated on July 14, 1986.[3]

After the transfer and multiple extensions, KCKX received its license to cover from the FCC on August 11, 1987.[4]

In March 1988, Azelco, Inc., reached an agreement to sell this station to Communications Arts, Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on June 22, 1988, and the transaction was consummated on July 1, 1988.[5]

In December 1990, Communications Arts, Inc., agreed to sell KCKX to The Concord Group, Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on February 8, 1991, and the transaction was consummated on September 17, 1991.[6] This change would prove short-lived as The Concord Group, Inc., announced an agreement in June 1992 to sell this station to Spotlight Communications, Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on July 28, 1992, and the transaction was consummated on September 9, 1992.[7]

In September 1997, Spotlight Communications, Inc., reached an agreement to sell this station to Donald D. Coss. The deal was approved by the FCC on January 21, 1998, and the transaction was consummated on February 23, 1998.[8]

Effective June 2, 2014, KCKX was sold to Edward C. Distell along with KWBY for $150,000.
