The station was founded on July 31, 1986 under call sign K22BH, showing music videos. In 1995, the station joined The WB upon the network's launch, then in 1998, the station dropped WB programming and became an independent station. On May 8, 2000, it changed the call sign to K41FO.

In 2002, the station joined TeleFutura; after TeleFutura became UniMás in 2013, the station became an affiliate of the new network. On June 3, 2015, the station was licensed for digital operation and changed the call sign to the current KCRP-CD.
