KRWR (92.1 FM) is an American radio station in Tyler, Texas, and is owned by Gleiser Communications, LLC and airs a sports format with programming from Fox Sports Radio. Its studios are located off Loop 323 in southeast Tyler, and its transmitter is located northeast of downtown Tyler.

History[edit]

The 92.1 frequency traces its roots back to 1975 as KROZ ("K-Rose").

During its lifetime, it has aired country music ("Tyler Rose Country"), rock, and urban contemporary music formats (as "Z92.1" while keeping the KROZ calls) and included local personalities such as Hoss Huggins, Alex Price, Joel Hardy, Mike O'Neill, Bill Davis, Paul Berry, and Mick Fulgham.

The station flipped to a 1950s/1960s oldies format and took the KGLD calls on February 9, 1992. On August 24, 1993, the station changed its call sign to KDOK.[1] KTBB (600 AM) has had the same call sign since it signed on.[2]

On April 27, 2009, KDOK dropped the oldies format for a syndication of the news/talk and sports programming on sister station KTBB. The call sign was also changed to KTBB-FM to match KTBB.[3]

On May 7, 2009, the KDOK calls and oldies format were moved to 1240 AM in Kilgore, Texas. The station on that frequency was previously known as KBGE.

On February 3, 2015, the station's call sign was changed to KRWR.

Programming[edit]

On August 6, 2011, KTBB-FM changed formats from consumer information based talk radio programming over to ESPN Radio. The subsequent change in format also led to change the branding of the radio station to "ESPN East Texas 92.1 FM". ESPN East Texas now offers the full lineup of ESPN Radio programming as well as local programs such as "Sportstalk with Bill Coates" and "The Eric Sullivan Show".

In February 2017 KRWR switched affiliations to Fox Sports Radio and rebranded as "92.1 The Team FM".
