On August 14, 2015, K283CH signed on the air at 104.5 FM. It was leased by iHeartMedia to relay KTBZ-FM HD2, which carried a regional Mexican format branded as La Mejor.[1]

On September 7, 2017, the station switched to a simulcast of KQBT HD2, which launched a new urban adult contemporary format as 104.5 Kiss FM. The new station aimed to compete against Urban One's dominant KMJQ.[2]

On February 18, 2019, the lease with iHeart Media ended, leading the owner operator, Centro Cristiano de Vida Eterna, to air an independent mix of urban gospel and R&B under the branding 104-5 I Hope FM. The previous format continued to be broadcast on KQBT HD2 as 93.7 HD2 Kiss FM until June 2019.[3]
