Station history

Signed on as KRTK in May 1991 to simulcast 92.1 KRTS classical music programming to increase the station's coverage in Houston. It was sold four years later after KRTS request to increase power was approved by the FCC.

Since then 97.1 has seen, Tejano/Regional Mexican (simulcasting 850 KEYH-AM). Under AM/FM, it acquired the KKTL calls as "Houston's Talk FM, 97 Talk". After the talk format floundered it was switched to simulcast KTBZ-FM "107-5 The Buzz" programming. It continued simulcasting 107.5 after KTBZ and KLDE "Oldies 94.5" swapped frequencies in 2000, the result of an ownership trade-off in the AM-FM/Clear Channel merger. Newcomer Cox Radio got KKTL and the 107.5 facility where KLDE was moved. In October 2000 it became Rhythmic/CHR as KTHT "Hot 97.1".
