KKGM is an AM Ministries radio station that serves the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and is owned by Mortenson Broadcasting.

In addition to Southern Gospel Music and ministries, KKGM is also the Dallas radio broadcast affiliate of Oklahoma Sooners football games,[1] Texas A&M Aggies men's basketball games, and UT Arlington Mavericks men's basketball games.

History

The station started out in 1994 as KOME, a simulcast of KHVN-970 kHz. It was intended to be the dial expansion position for KHVN, to become the new permanent home for that station in 2004, but Infinity/CBS Radio sold the frequency in 1998. Since Mortenson now owns both 970 and 1630, this move could feasibly still happen. The year the station was sold, it has switched its format to Spanish language music as KBCM. Three years later, the station changed its callsign to KNAX under a religious format in Spanish. The station had applied for license city move to Euless and for call letters "KHEV," but went with "KKGM" instead in 2004 with a Southern Gospel format.

KKGM then switched from a Southern Gospel format to an all-talk format, but later switched to (and currently broadcasts) a mix of Southern Gospel music along with featured talk.
