1. History

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 two radio stations in New Mexico now KLEA and KZOR. The original Federal Communications Commission FCC construction permit called for the transmitter to be co-located with Channel 4 KDBC-TV, though this was never built.

On June 6, 1978, the station signed on as KFIM. The stations logo was usually shown as "92KF/M", and it featured a Top 40 format. The Media Company changed its corporate name to 92KF/M, Inc., that same year. The transmitter was installed on the Channel 14 KFOX-TV tower, with studios in the Peppertree Square Shopping Center on North Mesa Street in West El Paso Center. KFIM had to compete with 97.5 KINT-FM now KBNA-FM, which had already been established as El Pasos big Top 40 station. In 1981, a receiver was appointed for KFIM.

ELP Broadcasting Associates bought the station in 1986 and changed the station call sign to KOFX the next year. ELP Broadcasting moved the station from Top 40 to a hot adult contemporary sound, and began using "The Fox" as the stations moniker. The studios remained at the Peppertree Square Shopping Center.

KOFX was sold in 1994 to Magic Broadcasting for $3 million. It switched to a classic hits format and the studios moved to 4105 Rio Bravo Street, off Executive Center Boulevard.

Entravision acquired KOFX in 1999. KOFXs studios were moved to the Entravision facilities on North Mesa Street. KOFX and its AM simulcast partner, 1150 KHRO, are Entravisions only English-language stations in El Paso.
