KRUF (94.5 FM, "K94.5") is a radio station broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) format. The station serves the Shreveport, Louisiana area. The station is currently owned by Townsquare Media. [1] Its studios are shared with its other five sister stations in West Shreveport (one mile west of Shreveport Regional Airport), and the transmitter is in Mooringsport, Louisiana.


K-94-5 signed on in August 1996 as "Big Dog 94-5" and has broadcast in its current Top 40 format for 12 years. Previous to adopting the KRUF call letters, K-94-5 was known as KWKH-FM, sister station to the legendary KWKH, home of the Louisiana Hayride.

KWKH-FM began broadcasting November 21, 1948. It was operated by International Broadcasting Corporation, which was owned by The Shreveport Times.[2]
