KOTK (1420 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Spanish religion format. Licensed to Omaha, Nebraska, USA, the station serves the Omaha area. The station is currently owned by Pennsylvania Media Associates, Inc. and features programing from Salem Communications.[1]


The station went on the air on March 2, 1957 under the name KOOO, sporting a country music format, later simulcasting with 104.5, which went on the air on May 12, 1972. By 1978, KOOO had changed to a news/talk format, with the 104.5 moving to MOR. In March of 1979, it flipped to an easy listening format and was renamed KESY, again simulcasting with 104.5. In 1981, the AM reverted to the old KOOO callsign and adopted a Music of Your Life nostalgia format. In 1984, the callsign changed to KROM. In 1986, the AM once again became KESY with a beautiful music format, although not simulcasing 104.5. For a brief two-week period in June of 1990, the calls became KLAO before reverting to KESY. In January of 1995, the station changed its call sign to KBBX under an Urban Oldies format. Journal Communications purchased KBBX in January of 1998 and changed the programming to a syndicated Spanish format. In May of 2002, the station became KHLP with an advice talk format. In April of 2005, it was announced that Journal had sold KHLP to Salem Communications, and the station was rebranded in December of that year as "Newstalk 1420 KOTK." On September 4, 2008, KOTK flipped to a Spanish religion format with the slogan "La Luz". [2]
