History

KEHH was the longtime FM sister station to Polk County Broadcasting Company's 1440 KETX, owned by Harold J. Haley, Sr.

Originally proposed to operate from the 1440 KETX tower site, 0.8 miles NNE of Livingston on U.S. Highway 59 in September 1969, Haley was granted a License to Cover the new FM facility by the Federal Communications Commission, operating at 3 kilowatts of power, on frequency channel 221 (92.1 MHz), as KETX-FM, elevated at 145 meters height above average terrain, on October 19, 1970. Donald L. Gulihur was the Chief Engineer for the facility's construction.

KETX-FM would increase power to the current 32 kilowatts ERP, elevated at 185 meters height above average terrain, which included moving one operating channel up to the current 222 (92.3 MHz) on September 16, 1992.

KETX-FM and KETX were owned by Polk County Broadcasting Company until October 8, 2008, when the two facilities, plus the low power television station, were sold to Livingston Telephone, under the subsidiary Telcom Supply, Inc., after the deaths of Hal Sr. & wife Peggy Haley.

The KETX trio of facilities were locally owned and operated until KSBJ purchased this station in July 2019. KETX was next sold by Livingston Telephone to Ken Luck on October 2, 2019, who proceeded to flip the AM, and its newly licensed FM translator, to this facility's former Classic Rock format as "102.3 The Eagle".

KETX-FM changed from its longtime callset to the current KEHH on October 15, 2019.

KETX-LP remains the sole facility still owned and operated by the Livingston Telephone Company's subsidiary, Telcom Supply.
