History[edit]

KJCE first signed on the air as a 1000 Watt daytime-only radio station on August 28, 1958.[1] It used the call letters KTXN and was one of the first Spanish language radio stations in Texas. It later became KOKE, the AM side of the legendary KOKE Country music radio brand in Austin in the 1970s. (An FM sister station 95.5 KOKE-FM, signed on in 1968, not related to today's KOKE-FM.) The AM station would later return to Spanish language as KMMM and also try a Beautiful music format before switching to satellite-delivered Urban adult contemporary as "K-Juice 1370," switching call letters to KJCE. KJCE became a talk station in 2002. The station formerly simulcast on the HD3 carrier of sister station Majic 95.5 as well as translator K242CC at 96.3 MHz. On July 29, 2013, both outlets dropped the KJCE simulcast and an Urban AC format was launched as "96.3 RNB."
