Format Flip[edit]

At 2:00 pm CST on October 10, 2013, KKTX-FM dropped its Active Rock format, as "96X", and began stunting with snippets of different songs from various genres.[2] Three hours later at 5:00pm, KKTX-FM switched to a Classic Rock format as "Classic Rock 96.1".[2]

The last song as "96X" was Unity by Shinedown and the first song as "Classic Rock 96.1" was La Grange by ZZ Top.
