The station signed on in 2000 as KPXG. The station permit had existed for years and had been planned as a 6,000 watt operation. Changes were made to run it as a minimal 100 watt operation. The station was owned by Claire "Reis" Benesara, manager of KDWN radio in its pre-Beasley days.

The engineering department of HBC (predecessor of present-day Univision Radio) moved several stations around in frequency and moved the station to Angel Peak where it operates as a class C zero station. Dana Demerjiana was GM, Eric Martel was the engineering manager, and David Stewart of HBC corporate organised the upgrade (basically an HBC specialty).

This station also routinely plays English language pop hits by non-Hispanic artists.
