History[edit]

KROB first went on the air in 1963 to serve the farming community of Robstown with a country music format. The station was licensed for operation daytime hours only. In 1966 KROB added a sister FM station, KROB-FM 99.9, to simulcast the AM station and to provide nighttime service. KROB-FM is now KSAB-FM. KROB was assigned the call letters KGLF on August 1, 1993. On October 9, 2002, the station changed its call sign back to KROB.[3] An FM translator was added in the late 2000s to allow KROB FM service.
