History[edit]

The station was assigned the call letters KAZT on September 9, 1998, and hit the air at frequency 600 AM. On January 22, 2001, the station changed its call sign to the current KNRO. During much of its life as KNRO the station was primarily a sports format.[2] During that time, the frequency was moved from 600 to 1670 AM. From 2001 to 2010, the station was primarily an ESPN Radio affiliate before changing to Fox Sports Radio.

Today, KNRO simulcasts all of its programming on translator station K280GP 103.9 FM in Bridgeport, California.

On August 22, 2016 KNRO and its sports format moved to 1400 AM Redding, swapping frequencies with news/talk KQMS, which moved to 1670 kHz AM Redding.[3]
