KEKO (101.7 FM, "Radio Luz") is a Spanish language Christian formatted radio station that serves the Orange Grove, Corpus Christi, Texas, area. This station is a repeater of KLIT from Ranchito Las Lomas-Laredo, Texas.

History[edit]

KEKO signed on in 1998. In 2004, lightning damage to its transmitter prompted the station to operate at 70 watts. Because the application needed Mexican clearance, it took eight years to be approved; in the meantime, in 2006 and again in 2011, KEKO applied to go silent due to financial difficulties resulting from the reduced power. Once the station got up and running, it lost its transmitter site, prompting a move to a new location.
