Station history[edit]

Prior to its flip to Korean language programming, the 1460 signal was once the simulcast of KRTR-FM. KHRA at first had offered a local content before going silent in 2005.

On March 1, 2008 KHRA returned to the air and became a part of affiliated radio network RadioKorea of Los Angeles' KMPC AM 1540. The station is calling itself on-air RADIOKOREA HAWAII 라디오 코리아 하와이 and broadcasts local news, weather, traffic and information to Korean communities in the Hawaiian islands and to Korean tourists. It also broadcasts live shows from Los Angeles-based programs and locally produced shows as well, including an hour-long show on weeknights aimed at young, English speaking Hawaiian Koreans.

License cancellation and reinstatement[edit]

On June 1, 2017 the Federal Communications Commission cancelled KHRA's license at RK Media Group's request.[1]. The FCC then reinstated the license on June 30, 2017 per request[2]. Shortly after, KHRA filed a request to remain 'silent'[3]. They will have until June 2, 2018 to resume operations.
