KRXO (1270 AM) is a sports talk oriented radio station located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. KRXO is owned by Ty and Tony Tyler, through licensee Tyler Media, LLC. KRXO (AM) is also broadcast on FM translator K300CY at 107.9 FM.[1]

KRXO transmits with a directional signal during day and night. The day signal is maximized to send a 13,000 watt ERP lobe up and down I-44. The day and night signal has been designed to provide the best possible coverage for Tulsa and the surrounding population centers.

The station originated as KWPR in Claremore, Oklahoma in 1958. The call letters were a tribute to famous Oklahoman Will Rogers - William Penn Rogers.

On September 16, 2015, the then-KTUZ dropped the Spanish and picked up the sports talk format from sister station KRXO-FM in Oklahoma City. The station changed its call sign to KRXO on October 5, 2015.
