KTGX also broadcasts in HD and has an "HD2" format called "Kool Chrome" playing oldies music and is also simulcast on translator K228BR 93.5 FM, which serves downtown Tulsa.

Before KTGX launched on December 28, 2009, the station aired a classic hits format, branded as "KOOL 106.1" with the call letters KQLL-FM. The format launched in 1990.

Before the launch of KOOL, the station aired an Adult Contemporary format as "Lite 106," and before that, broadcast hits from the 1960s and 1970s.

At Noon on December 28, 2009, KQLL-FM relaunched as 1990s Hits 106.1 Gen-X Radio with the first song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana.

At 6 AM on July 3, 2012, KTGX began stunting with all-Christmas music, all-Bruce Springsteen beginning at 9 AM, and at 10 AM, audio from the 1996 film "Twister" and an announcer saying: "Warning! There's a twister blowing into town. It's an F5, and it's coming... soon." At Noon, the station flipped to country, branded as "The Twister." The first song on "The Twister" was "Blown Away" by Carrie Underwood.
