History[edit]

The facility was first licensed by the FCC on August 13, 1970 @ 94.3 MHz in Palestine, Texas. With an initial ERP of 3 kilowatts, it was originally owned by Vista Broadcasting Company, Inc.

The station moved its transmission location and COL to Frankston as KOYE effective April 1, 2001. On April 17, 2001, the station briefly returned its call sign to KLIS, and on May 7, 2001, back to the current KOYE.[2] The station name "La Invasora" means "The Invader" in English. It is overtly referencing the Mexican illegal alien invasion of North America, known as La Reconquista movement. Other Mexican radio stations use blatantly racist use phrases like, La Raza, in English, literally means, "The Race[3]".
