The station first existed as KCRM from 1982-06-01 to 1993-12-27, before changing its call sign to KHLR. On 2001-04-09, the station call sign became KXCS-FM, which it kept until receiving its existing call sign of KJXJ on 2007-03-29.
Transition to KJXJ
On the evening of 2007 March 19, DJs announced that the station was changing from the Rock/Alternative Rock format. The last DJs that night were Kira McKinney (on-air moniker: "The Queen of Rock") to 10 PM, and Dex Peck from 10 PM-midnight. The last songs under the old format: "I Ran (So Far Away)" by A Flock of Seagulls; "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)" by Cobra Starship; "Joker and the Thief" by Wolfmother; "Teenage Dirtbag" by Wheatus; and "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen, dedicated by Dex to a list of staffers.
The transition day of March 20th was a confusing and motley collection of music not conforming to a single genre. Across the course of the day, listeners heard a bizarre mixture of Rap, Classic Rock, Show Tunes, TV Theme Songs, Reggae, Easy Listening, and others. Shortly after midnight, the audio feed abruptly cut off in the middle of a long string of Irish Drinking Songs, and suddenly new programming came over the air, identifying the broadcast as a Jack FM station. On 2007 April 3, this station began identifying itself as KJXJ-FM.
Return to Rock
On September 20, 2010, KJXJ abandoned the Jack format and became "Rock 103.9."
On March 2, 2015 KJXJ changed their format from rock to sports, branded as "ESPN Aggieland".
