 KNUS99.COM - DFW AM Stations
Licensed to Garland in 1979, the frequency laid dormant until several companies expressed an interest in the mid-1980s; Century Broadcasting was the top competitor for the FCC license for 770 in 1984, but five years passed before Crawford Broadcasting won out and put a station on the air.

Station moved from its 43-year home at 1190 AM on 11/29/1990, although it was simulcast on both frequencies until 12/6/1990.
