KRIA (103.9 FM, "The Pulse") is a hot adult contemporary formatted radio station licensed to serve Plainview, Texas. The station is owned by Monty Spearman and Gentry Todd Spearman, through High Plains Radio Network, LLC.[1] There is an LMA with RAMAR Communications of Lubbock to re-broadcast Magic 106.5 KXTQ from Lubbock.

History

The station used the call sign KPMB from 1986 to 1988, KKYN-FM from 1988 to 2002, KVOP-FM for two months in 2002, before becoming KRIA on September 16, 2002.[2]

The station was owned by Equicom until a 2004 sale of 12 Texas radio stations to Rhattigan Broadcasting for a reported total of $3 million.[3]

KRIA-FM is part of High Plains Radio's Plainview cluster of radio stations, which includes KKYN-FM (106.9 FM), KVOP (1090 AM) and KREW (1400 AM). High Plains Radio purchased the stations from Rhattigan Broadcasting effective March 2, 2015, at a price of $450,000.

On July 19, 2017 KRIA changed format from tejano to hot adult contemporary, branded as "The Pulse". (info taken from stationintel.com)
