It airs a classic rock radio format and is owned by Townsquare Media. The station's studios are located in Temple, and its transmitter is located south of Moody, Texas.

History[edit]

KLTD went on the air on May 31, 1976, and was licensed to The Lampasas Broadcasting Company owned by Stephen Sampson. The station was branded, "The Great Ones." Group & Broadcasting of Tulsa acquired KLTD in mid 1977.

On October 1, 2010, KLTD changed its format from mainstream rock (as "Eagle 101.7") to all sports, branded as "The Ticket."

On March 15, 2013, at 5 PM, the station began stunting as "The Bone" with "music for dogs." The stunt lasted until the following Monday, when a new permanent format debuted as classic hits, branded as "K101.7".[2]

On June 23, 2017, KLTD shifted its format from classic hits to classic rock, branded as "K-Rock 101.7".[3]
