History

KONO-FM first signed on the air on February 18, 1971 as KNAF-FM, sister station to 910 KNAF (AM) in Fredericksburg, Texas.[1] At first it simulcast the country music format on the AM station, but by the mid-1970s it had a separately programmed beautiful music format. It later took the call letters KFAN, as an adult album alternative station. The station then moved to the San Antonio media market as KONO-FM, simulcasting 860 KONO from May 1990 until KONO (AM) changed its format to sports radio in January 2014. During that time KBKK 107.9 FM in Johnson City, Texas started broadcasting KFAN's previous Adult Alternative format. About a year later it acquired the KFAN-FM call sign.
