History[edit]

On February 1, 1988, the callsign was changed to KRRV with the callsign changing on March 15, 1996 back to the callsign of KDBS. [2]

The station aired ESPN sports radio as 1410 ESPN Sports Radio while owned by Clear Channel. The format was changed to an oldies-based format when the station was acquired by Cenla Broadcasting in November 2006.

In September 2008, Cenla Broadcasting changed the KDBS format back to sports as ESPN 1410.

In the mid 1960s, the station was owned by a local attorney. The format was rock and roll.
