History[edit]

KONO-FM was previously known as KFAN, an adult album alternative station located in Fredericksburg, Texas. KONO-FM had been simulcasting KONO/860 from May 1990 until KONO changed formats to sports in January 2014. During that time KBKK 107.9 FM started broadcasting KFAN's previous format from Johnson City, Texas about a 1 year later acquiring the KFAN calls. KONO-FM, formerly part of an oldies AM and FM simulcast, now features a playlist of hit songs from the co-owned A.M. station's long history of Top 40 music from the mid '60s to the late '70s.
