KRAK (910 kHz, "CBS Sports Radio 910") is a commercial AM radio station licensed to Hesperia, California, and broadcasting to the Victor Valley, California, area. It is owned by CBS Radio and airs a sports radio format with programming from the co-owned CBS Sports Radio Network.

History[edit]

KRAK-AM originally signed on in 1990 carrying a smooth jazz format. The call letters were borrowed from a legendary 50,000 watt Country music station in Sacramento which is owned by CBS and today is 1140 KHTK. On July 31, 2008, CBS Radio announced plans to sell its mid-size and small market stations (including KRAK) to focus more on major market clusters. However, such a sale was never consummated.

On November 15, 2011 KRAK changed its format to sports, branded as "910 ESPN".[3] The previous ESPN Radio affiliate in the region, 103.1 KVFG, began stunting with Christmas music, then switched to classic rock.

In September 2012, KRAK began a transition to CBS Sports Radio with hourly updates. It left ESPN and began 24-hour broadcasts of CBS Sports Radio on January 2, 2013.[4]
