History

KRMG was founded by oil company partners Robert S. Kerr and Dean McGee. Kerr, at the time a US Senator, wanted a station that would cover both Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Thus, six towers and 50,000 Watts were employed to achieve the desired coverage pattern.

KRMG was a Middle-of-the-road music station from the 1950s through the 1970s, when it adopted a full-service adult contemporary format. In the 1990s, the station dropped music altogether and made the transition to the current news talk format. During the 2000s, the station dropped local talk and instead chose to broadcast most of its programs from satellite.

KRMG is credited with the development of Tulsa's River Parks. The station first hosted the Great Raft Race in 1973. It was a floating race down the Arkansas River from Sand Springs to Tulsa. It was the first major event to attract people to the Arkansas River. The River Parks authority was formed in 1974 to develop the area.

Former hosts

Former KRMG hosts include John Erling, Ann Williams, Dianna Proffitt, Dick Andert, Jerry Vaughn, Watson Jelks, Johnny Martin, and Wes Minter. In the KRMG Newsroon, ABC's Bob Brown and CNN's Bob Losure once served as reporters.
