KOFX (92.3 FM), known as 92.3 the Fox, is a radio station broadcasting a Classic Hits format. Licensed to El Paso, Texas, United States, the station serves the El Paso area. The station is currently owned by Entravision Holdings, LLC.[1] It shares studio facilities with three other radio stations and television stations KINT-TV and KTFN, all of which are located on North Mesa Street/Highway 20 in northwest El Paso, and its transmitter is located atop the Franklin Mountains in the El Paso city limits.

History[edit]

The station was founded by a partnership of businessmen from Hobbs, New Mexico—John A. Parry, Theodore R. Johnson, and Glen L. Houston—called The Media Company. They had operated an AM/FM pair in Humble City, New Mexico (now KYKK and KZOR). The original construction permit called for the antenna to be colocated with KDBC-TV, though this was never built. The station went on the air in 1978 as KFIM, usually shown as "92KF/M", and featuring a Top 40 format; the Media Company organized as 92KF/M, Inc., that same year. The transmitter was installed on the KFOX-TV tower, with studios in the Peppertree Square Shopping Center on Mesa Street in West El Paso Center. In 1981, a receiver was appointed for KFIM.

ELP Broadcasting Associates bought the station in 1986 and changed the call letters to KOFX the next year. The station was sold in 1994 to Magic Broadcasting and the studios moved to 4105 Executive. Entravision acquired KOFX in 1999.
