History[edit]

The station went on the air in 1965. On October 11, 1989 the station changed its call sign from KZZK, using the on-air moniker KZ103 to the current KORD.[2]

As KZZK 102.7 this station operated a CHR/AC leaning format in the 1980s. Towards the end of that decade, it ceded the CHR market to then-powerhouse KIOK (OK95). It became a country station and has remained that to this day.
