KBRO in Bremerton and KNTB in Lakewood, both Washington, are a pair of simulcasting radio stations serving the Puget Sound region. KBRO broadcasts at 1490 kHz with 1,000 watts full-time while KNTB broadcasts at 1480 kHz with 1,000 watts day and 111 watts night. Both stations are owned by Seattle Streaming Radio, LLC.
KBRO, which signed on the air in May 1947 and was the one-time sister station of the current KRWM during its early years as Bremerton's dominant community station, and KNTB, which signed on the air as KQLA, with an MOR/Talk format in September 1978, became simulcasts in 1998 as affiliates of the Triangle Radio Network, a service that targeted the LGBT community with a mix of music, Talk, and specialty fare. Controversy, a lack of support from advertisers and signal coverage would force the stations to drop the network and, in the process, be sold to its current owners. After short terms, broadcasting oldies, and then a Hispanic Christian format, it settled into its current programming in 2005. Later, KLDY (in Lacey-Olympia, Washington) and K221FJ (an FM translator in Tacoma, Washington) were added to the network.
The stations now broadcast programming from ESPN Deportes, the Hispanic version of ESPN Radio. They are also the local sources for the Seattle Mariners and Seattle Seahawks Spanish broadcasts.
On March 30, 2015 KBRO and KNTB went silent.
