KRXO (107.7 KRXO) is a classic rock radio station serving the Oklahoma City area and is owned by Tyler Media. Its transmitter is located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

History

The station began broadcasting in 1976 with the call letters KAEZ ("Eazy 107") and was a Black formatted station with a mix of urban contemporary, soul, jazz and blues. The station played very little hip hop or (rap) in the early 1980s, you could say that KAEZ was labeled as the Black Jack-FM because of the variety of Black music the station played and the obscure music mix it had at the time, playing everything from R&B to Jazz, even some music from the 40's and 50's. KAEZ remained on the air until November 1985 when the station had a fire that silenced the station along with going bankrupt causing the station to be sold to Price Communications. The callsign was changed to KIMY ("My 107.7") and played adult contemporary until August 1987 when it switched to classic rock as KRXO.
