The history of “98.3 KORA” began with KORA-AM at 1240 on the AM dial. The station’s first studio, located at 305 West 26th Street in Bryan, was the second station on the air in the area. D.C. Jones, the original owner and manager of the station started a long history of entertainment when he with a crew of nine others made their first broadcast on September 10, 1947 from Bryan, Texas.

Today, just as was the case in 1947, KORA and its sister stations in the Brazos Radio group continue to entertain, inform, and care for the people of Bryan-College Station and beyond. The stations along with our employees take great pride in remaining true to our heritage in bringing our listeners programming reflecting the values and interests of our listeners. These stations and our employees are committed to their community and to the support of community organizations. We serve and support community organizations to serve the public good and interests of the communities we are privileged to serve.
