KTCR signed on on April 5, 1962, as a Country station. The transmitter and three-tower antenna array are located in New Hope on Winnetka Avenue north of 36th Avenue. This has been the only transmitter location for the station since it signed on the air.
Al Tedesco purchased the station in 1968.
In 1983 the station was sold to John and Kathleen Parker.
