History

KTBB-FM

KDOK logo used until April, 2009.

The 92.1 frequency traces its roots back to the 1970s as KROZ ("K-Rose").

During its lifetime, it has aired country ("Tyler Rose Country"), rock and urban contemporary music formats (as "Z92.1" while keeping the KROZ calls) and included local personalities such as Hoss Huggins, Alex Price, Joel Hardy, Mike O'Neill, Bill Davis, Paul Berry and Mick Fulgham.

The station flipped to a 50s/60s oldies format and took the KGLD calls on February 9, 1992. On August 24, 1993, the station changed its call sign to KDOK.[3] KTBB AM has had the same call sign since it signed on.[4]

On April 27, 2009, KDOK dropped the oldies format for a syndication of the News/Talk & Sports programming on sister station KTBB AM. The call sign was also changed to KTBB-FM to match KTBB AM.[5]

On May 7, 2009 the KDOK calls and oldies format were moved to 1240 AM in Kilgore, TX. 1240 was previously known as KBGE.

Radio shows

KTBB broadcasts the syndicated radio shows The Glenn Beck Show, The Rush Limbaugh Show, and The Sean Hannity Show on weekdays.
