KOBC was founded on February 24, 1967 by its previous owner, Ozark Christian College and operated on the 91.1 FM frequency. In 1972, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a license to increase transmitting power to 30,000 watts and change the frequency to 90.7 FM. Transmission power was raised again in 1998 to 60,000 watts, effectively increasing KOBC's listening area by 40%.
