The station was originally licensed to Kirkland. The station signed on in 1948 as KRKL; in 1953, the station switched its call sign to KNBX. In 1963, it changed call sign to KNBK; then, in 1964, it switched to the current KBLE and was relicensed to Seattle. In the same year, the station launched an FM simulcasting counterpart, located at 93.3 FM. That station was sold in 1981, and is now KPWK.
KBLE has been a mainly religious station most of its life. Originally a daytime-only operation, KBLE finally received permission to add a night-time signal with 440 watts sometime in the 1980s.
The station is currently owned by Sacred Heart Radio.
