City of License: Chickasha
Power: 3.3 kw
Notes: Before 1997, KWCO-FM and sister AM KXXK were Chickasha-focused stations. Tyler Media bought the station and it was Mexican from 1998-2000, but its former call letters (KTUZ) and format moved to Okarche at 106.7. This station used to use ABC networks’ Classic Country network for programming.
Tyler sold the station to other owners and the stations went back to a Chickasha focus with a classic hits format. Several former Oklahoma City jocks have spent time here, however, after cutbacks and firings.
In 2013, the station added an HD side channel which feeds a Chickasha translator at 106.1, playing a country format called “106.1 The Ranch.”
