History[edit]

In December 2004, Todd Deneui applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station. The FCC granted this permit on March 2, 2005, with a scheduled expiration date of March 2, 2008.[2]

In June 2006, permit holder Todd Deneui applied to the FCC to sell the construction permit to Grace Community Church of Amarillo for $95,000. The FCC approved the move on July 31, 2006, and the transaction was formally consummated on August 16, 2006.[3]

With new ownership in place, the new station was assigned call sign "KRBG" on October 11, 2006.[4] After construction and testing were completed in February 2008, the station was granted its broadcast license on March 10, 2008.[5] On October 1, 2008, the station changed to the current call sign of "KBIJ".[4]

Grace Community Church of Amarillo sold the station to Oralia Cowan's OMI Oilfield Investments, LLC for $421,000; the sale was consummated on July 23, 2013.
