This station came on the air as a 1 kW daytimer in 1974 under the ownership of Russellville Broadcasting Company.  In earlier days it had stints as Country Christian (as "Power 1500") and Gospel under multiple owners before eventually converting to a Spanish-language Christian music and teaching format, possibly in 2006 after the station was sold to Pilati Investments (Jimmie Pilati).  The station acquired a new construction permit for an FM translator in early February 2018 for a broadcast on 93.5 MHz. 

Karl Pilati took over operations of the station and company after the death of Jimmie.
