KNAL (93.3 FM; 93.3 The Wolf) is a radio station licensed to Port Lavaca, Texas, United States, and serves Victoria and the Gulf Coast area. The station is currently owned by Victoria Radioworks, LLC., and airs a Country music format.[1]

History[edit]

KNAL was originally proposed by Daniel Andrus, who owned the AM facility in Port Lavaca, 1560 KGUL, under the licensee name of Calhoun County Broadcasting. The facility signed on as the FM sister to KGUL on April 13, 1978, as KGUL-FM. The original transmission site was located on U.S. Highway 87, 1.5 miles west of Port Lavaca, Texas, and a main studio location at 213 Colorado Street in Port Lavaca.

The facility was originally operating on channel 240 (95.9 MHz), but relocated to channel 227 (93.3 MHz) in 1995 to accommodate the sign on of 95.9 KHMC in 1996.

Victoria Radio Works acquired the facility in October 1998.
