History[edit]

In October 2007, 1 A Chord, Inc., applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station to serve Muenster, Texas. The FCC granted this permit on December 12, 2008, with a scheduled expiration date of December 12, 2011.[2] The new station was assigned call sign "KTMU" on February 6, 2009.[3] After construction and testing were completed, the station was granted its broadcast license on January 6, 2012.[4]

In February 2012, license holder 1 A Chord, Inc., applied to the FCC to transfer the KTMU license to Randall Christy's South Central Oklahoma Christian Broadcasting, Inc., in exchange for $1,000.[5] The Commission approved the transfer on April 25, 2012, and the sale was consummated on December 1, 2012.[6]
