History[edit]

Until Thanksgiving weekend 2005, it was a progressive talk station featuring Jerry Springer in the mornings. KRPT became a talk station in March 2005 "92.5 Progressive Talk". Before then, it was Hip Hop and R&B station KHTY, "Hot 92.5" From 2003-2005. Before that from mid September 1998 to 2003 it played Urban R&B in a simulcast with KSJL-AM, the call sign was KSJL-FM. Before KSJL they were KTXX a station licensed in Devine, Texas.

From 2005 to April 2010, KRPT ran an all Texas country music format known as "92.5 The Outlaw."

On April 15, 2010 KRPT changed their format to talk, branded as "92.5 The Patriot", picking up the majority of the station's lineup from KPWT, which carried most of the programs until changing formats to classic rock on April 1 of the same year.

On September 19, 2012, KRPT added a translator K289BN 105.7 MHz and changed formats, this time to Rhythmic CHR as "Wild 92.5 / 105.7". [2]

On February 22, 2013, KRPT changed their format to classic country, branded as "92.5 "K-BUC".[2]The "WiLD" format continued on 105.7 and 101.9-HD3, until it was replaced by a Regional Mexican format as "La Preciosa" on January 20, 2014.

On June 24, 2015 KRPT began simulcasting on sister station KZEP-FM's HD3 subchannel and translator K227BH 93.3 FM San Antonio.[3]

On October 29th, 2015, KRPT and K227BH/KZEP-HD3 rebranded as "92.5 and 93.3 The Bull", with no other changes to the music, callsigns or DJs. The change was a preemption by iHeart after it was reported that rival Alpha Media had a website, nearly completed, that showed they would flip KHHL to country as "103.1 The Bull".[4]
