This station received its original construction permit for a new FM station in Redwood Valley, California, from the Federal Communications Commission on April 25, 2005.[3] The new station was assigned the call letters KAIS by the FCC on May 2, 2005.[1] In December 2007, the station was granted permission to change its community of license to Hopland, California.[4]

In October 2008, the Educational Media Foundation reached an agreement to transfer this station to One Ministries, Inc., as part of a complicated multi-station deal.[5] The deal was approved by the FCC on November 20, 2008, and the transaction was consummated on December 9, 2008.[6] The new owners applied to the FCC for new call letters and were assigned KORB on November 28, 2008.[1]

In March 2009, KORB kicked off its morning show with the station's first on air DJ, Costas Schuler.
