Prior to switching its programming to religious (Catholic) KCEO broadcast a business news format. From August 2005 to August 2007, KCEO had competition with Tecate, Baja California, based business talk station, Cash 1700. On August 1, 2007, Cash 1700 became San Diego 1700 and began airing a regular talk radio format, while still retaining Ray Lucia and a few small, one-hour business talk shows.

KCEO was one of the first stations to carry Rush Limbaugh. KCEO was the former flagship of Ray Lucia; he can now be heard on former competitor San Diego 1700.
