History[edit]

The station went on the air in 1956. It was assigned the call letters KREL on February 17, 1984. On January 28, 1991, the station changed its call sign to KDOL, and on March 6, 1998 to KDOX.[3]

In June 2010, KDOX purchased the construction permit for K272EE licensed to Moapa, Nevada.[4] with the plan to add a FM signal. On August 12, 2010, this signal went live.[5]

Prior to adopting an oldies music format, KDOX aired a news/talk format known as "Fox News Radio 1280." In August 2010, KDOX introduced a live, local mid-morning talk radio show, starring Casey Hendrickson and Heather Kydd (formerly the drive-time hosts on competitor KXNT) weekdays from 9 am - 11 am.[6] On August 12, 2010, KDOX introduced a simultaneously 99-watt[2] FM broadcast on 102.3 FM.[7] KDOX purchased the construction permit for $100.00 in June 2010.[4]

On December 31, 2010, KDOX changed formats to a 50s-70s oldies format known as "Kool 102." Along with the format change, the calls were changed as well to reflect the format. The station became known as KQLL.
