History[edit]

KAGC was initially proposed by Brazos Metro Inc. in December 1975. A construction permit was granted to build a 250 watt, Class D daytime facility, from a combined transmission and studio site at 1704 Paris St. in Bryan, on July 12, 1977. The facility was issued the callsign KAGC on September 26, 1977.

The studio location for KAGC was modified to 1710 South Texas Avenue in Bryan on October 21, 1977, with the transmission site remaining at 1704 Paris St., operated remotely from the studio.

The facility was constructed to specifications, and issued a License to Cover on April 27, 1978. Guy C. Hutcheson served as Engineer. In October 1978, KAGC's license was voluntarily transferred to Brazos Media, Inc.

KAGC increased power to the current 500 watts in June 1979.

Bryan Broadcasting Corporation purchased KAGC from Bob and Judith Bell, dba Divcon Associates, Inc. on April 6, 2006.
