History[edit]

1590 kHz went on air in 1961 as KCIN. It was owned by Victor Valley Broadcasters. Top-Dial Broadcasters bought the station in 1966 and sold it to Dynamic Radio Broadcasting in 1976. By 1978, Sidney King owned KCIN.

From 1995 to 2001, the station used the call letters KROY. It was given these call letters to honor country music entertainer Roy Rogers, but was never owned by him. It aired country music plus coverage of the California League's High Desert Mavericks baseball games. In 2001, KROY became KATJ, and the station changed to KRSX in 2003.
