KPXI[edit]

KPXI (100.7 MHz) of Overton simulcast KWRD-FM of Salem Communications until early 2009. The FCC approved the transfer of KPXI to Jerry T. Hanszen of Carthage, Texas.

History[edit]

In 1997, Salem Communications bought KEWS 94.9 of Arlington, Texas and made it into a Christian Talk format as KWRD-FM The Word 94.9. KWRD-FM moved to 100.7 on December 22, 2000 by trading places with sister station KLTY.

Scott Wilder and Lauren Lintner joined The Word in 1997 to do a talk show in the afternoon.

On September 18, 2015, KWRD was simulcasting on former Radio Disney affiliate KMKI 620 AM (now KEXB) for a week until the station switched formats to Business News/Talk as content formerly airing on KVCE 1160 AM. As of October 20, 2015, KWRD-FM's programming is simulcating on KVCE 1160 AM
