Signed on as KBER, a daytime only station on 1150. Power was 1,000 watts using a three tower directional antenna system. The DA was needed to protect co channel WTAW in College Station, Texas and KCCT Corpus Christi, Texas. As KBER was west of WTAW and north of KCCT the system directed to the north west and reduced signal across an arc toward the WTAW and KCCT service areas.
Towers and studios were on Alma Drive just outside the future Loop 410. The area would later be dubbed "KBER Square". There was once a KBER-FM on 100.3. It was later KSAQ and, under different owners is today's KCYY.
The station changed to 1160 in the mid 80's. 10,000 watts by day and 1,000 watts by night from a site west of San Antonio.
On August 26, 1991, the station changed its call letters from KFHM to KVAR.
On October 15, 1993, the station changed its call letters from KVAR to KENS and adopted a news/talk radio format.
On February 27, 2004, the station changed its call letters from KENS to KRDY.
In October 2013, Radio Disney Group filed to sell KRDY and KDIS-FM to Salem Communications Corporation, owner of several other San Antonio-area radio stations. Salem's purchase, at a price of $2 million, was consummated on February 7, 2014.
