KOBC (90.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Christian format. Licensed to Joplin, Missouri, USA, the station serves the Joplin area.

Past[edit]

KOBC was founded on February 24, 1967 by its previous owner, Ozark Christian College and operated on the 91.1 FM frequency. In 1972, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a license to increase transmitting power to 30,000 watts and change the frequency to 90.7 FM. Transmission power was raised again in 1998 to 60,00 watts, effectively increasing KOBC's listening area by 40%.

Sale of KOBC[edit]

OCC sold KOBC to the Educational Media Foundation, its current owner, on October 1, 2008.[2] [3]

Translators[edit]

In December 1987 an FM translator was added in Chanute, KS at 103.1 FM. A second translator was added for Fayetteville, AR in July 1988 at 100.1 FM, but it was disassembled after another Christian radio station began broadcasting in Fayetteville in 1996. The Chanute translator continues to operate.
