KZXL was first proposed by Harold J. Haley Jr., the son of longtime Livingston, Texas radio broadcaster Harold J. Haley Sr., who owned and operated KETX, KETX-FM and KETX-LP. A Construction Permit to build the facility was granted by the Federal Communications Commission on March 20, 2001. The facility was built and received its License to Cover on June 18, 2002. The station was originally programmed with a Classic Country format, branded as "Cat Country".

The station was assigned the call sign KLSN on October 12, 2001, during construction of the facility. The station changed its call sign on to KLJK on July 4, 2008, and to the current KZXL on March 3, 2009.[1]
