KDEB (1470 AM) was a radio station broadcasting an oldies format. Licensed to Estes Park, Colorado, USA, the station was owned by KONA COAST RADIO, LLC[1]

KDEB's skywave signal was received in parts of southern Wyoming, including Laramie[2] and Green River.[3]

History[edit]

The station was historically licensed previously with callsigns KSIR[4] (now assigned on 1010 AM in Brush, CO) prior to KRKI, and possibly KKEP.[5] The station went on the air as KRKI in August, 1967. On April 4, 1998, the station changed its call sign to KEZZ. On September 9, 2006, the station's call sign was changed to KEPL, on June 28, 2011, to KRBR, and on June 21, 2012, to the current KDEB.[6]

On August 15, 2008, KEPL Radio changed to an all talk format and branded itself "Talk Radio 1470". In May, KEPL flipped to oldies from True Oldies Channel.

The station went off the air on Monday, October 17, 2011.[7]
