It is owned by El Camino Communications and last aired a Spanish-language Christian Contemporary music format branded as "El Camino" (The Way).

El Camino had purchased the station from Simmons Media Group in early 2007. It started a new Spanish Oldies format in January 2007 as "La Nortenita 1310". In June 2008 the station began a rebroadcast on FM translator K240BL on 95.9 in Albuquerque. It has also changed its format to Regional Mexican and rebranded as "La Ley" a brand previously used by KZNM 106.7 for several months in 2007. In the fall of 2011 the format was changed to Spanish Christian Contemporary as "El Camino". By fall 2012 the AM station went silent but had continued to broadcast on the 95.9 translator until June 2013 when it changed to airing programming from KIVA 1600 AM. On February 7, 2014 it was observed that 1310 AM was broadcasting in Albuquerque in Spanish.
