1140AM Frequency History
1140AM first launched in 1967 with a Country format and maintained that programming (with the exception of a brief Easy Listening stint beginning in summer 1969) until 1978. The station changed to Adult Contemporary that April, but flipped again back to Country by July. During the 1980s, 1140AM first offered Oldies, followed by a simulcast of then-sister 106-5 KCI, and finally Urban with the KCXL call letters. Money problems forced the station dark in 1992, and two years later Pete Schartel returned the station to the air with an Oldies format. The station has since shifted to a primarily Talk format, with Oldies during overnights and some weekend hours.
