History

The station went on the air as KANF on 11 August 1995. On 8 September 1995, the station changed its call sign to the KBCT.[2]

On December 31, 2013, the KWBT call letters and Urban Contemporary format on 104.9 in Bellmead, Texas, moved to 94.5 while 104.9 FM became KBHT, which in turn launched an Adult Hits format.[3]

The station had planned to launch their HD2 feed on FM translator station K231CG in early October 2018, however the launch was delayed to the end of October due to "engineering and recent weather issues". On December 21, 2018, the Federal Communications Commission rescinded K231CG's broadcast license, as it had never properly been constructed before the expiration of its construction permit in 2016.
