Construction of KLUR, named KFMC for its first few months of existence, began in November 1962, and the station signed on shortly after. The station was built and originally owned by Nortex Broadcasting Company. KLUR Broadcasting Company bought the station in 1970 and upgraded it from 20,000 watts ERP to 100,000 three years later; Cumulus bought the station from the Beard family in 1997.
