KAND (1340 AM) is a radio station that serves the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and is owned by Yates Communications. This station runs an News/Talk format, and is also the home of Corsicana High School Tigers and Navarro College Bulldogs football games, and the latest news from the Texas State Network News, and ABC News. As of July 11, 2008, it airs sports programming from Fox Sports Radio during overnights and weekends.

History

KAND began in 1937 as a Variety/Entertainment station on 1310 KHz but 10 years later moved to AM 1340 and has maintained its variety format until the 1980s when they made a slow transition to Country music. The original station owner was J.C. West, who also owned the Wolf Brand (canned) Chili plant in Corsicana. West had applied for callsign WOLF, but the Federal Communications Commission wouldn't permit it due to the fact that the WOLF call letters are currently in use on Syracuse, New York's AM and FM stations.

In March 2008 Yates Communications announced FCC approval to buy KAND. Although the 1,000 watt station doesn't cover the immediate Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, KAND will be streaming online to North Texas listeners with a News/Talk format that offers programs currently not available on Dallas News/Talk formats.
