KLGO (1260 AM) is a sports radio station in Austin, Texas. The station broadcasts at 1260 kHz under ownership of Genuine Austin Radio. It is mostly a simulcast of co-owned 104.9 KTXX, which airs both local and ESPN Radio programming.

KLGO, under the KWNX Call sign, was a talk radio station, then became an ESPN Deportes Radio affiliate, and was the first Spanish-language sports radio station in Texas.[2] On September 4, 2011, KWNX became a straight simulcast of its sister station, KTXX, with the exception of broadcasts of Texas Rangers and occasional Round Rock Express baseball, Baylor Bears and Texas State Bobcats football. On August 19, 2013, it stopped simulcasting with KTXX and began broadcasting ESPN Radio programming throughout the day. The lone exception during the weekday was "Afternoons with Bucky and Erin," which was also broadcast on KTXX. KWNX continued to broadcast Texas Rangers games, Texas State football games and occasional Round Rock Express and San Antonio Spurs games.

On January 2, 2014, after its sister station, KTXX, became a mix of local sports talk and classic hits, KWNX again became a straight simulcast of KTXX. The exceptions were when KWNX aired Texas Rangers games, San Antonio Spurs games, Texas State football games, occasional Round Rock Express games and various other sporting events.

The call sign changed to KLGO on May 19, 2014.

On June 5, 2014, the simulcast of KTXX ceased and it became a gospel music station. It continued to broadcast sporting events, including Texas Rangers games, San Antonio Spurs games, Texas State football games, occasional Round Rock Express games and various others.

On May 10, 2015, KLGO changed their format to comedy, branded as "Comedy 1260".[3] It also continues to broadcast sporting events, including Texas Rangers games, San Antonio Spurs games, Texas State football games, occasional Round Rock Express games and various others.

On August 29, 2015, KLGO again became a simulcast of KTXX. The exceptions are Texas Rangers games, some San Antonio Spurs games, occasional Round Rock Express games, Vandegrift football games and various others.
