This facility dates back to an initial construction permit issued in December of 2013 to Damon Collins, who also operates WLYB in Livingston.  Originally a full class A with 5 (later 6) kW from a cell tower off Norris Avenue southwest of town, the permit struggled to get built out on time, so the company was forced to modify the permit for just 300 watts from the utility pole behind Frico City's city hall building downtown. That facility came on the air in mid-December 2016, playing Christmas music as a temporary format, filing a license to cover on the same day the permit was set to expire.  A few days after Christmas, the station debuted its regular format — country — as "Rooster Country 92.5".  The first song played was "Unanswered Prayers" by Garth Brooks.
