KKOB is owned by Cumulus Media and is the oldest and among the most powerful AM radio stations in New Mexico. The station's format is News/Talk, using the brand "News Radio 770 KKOB."
Our studios are located in Downtown Albuquerque and the transmitter tower is located in North Valley, New Mexico. It is also broadcast on the FM band at 94.5 K233CG Sandia, covering the Albuquerque metropolitan area. KKOB is a Class B radio station, operating with 50,000 watts around the clock, the maximum allowed by the Federal Communications Commission.
We use a non-directional signal during the daytime, reaching most of New Mexico's populated area, as well as parts of Colorado and Arizona. Many nights, with a good radio, we can be heard across much of the western half of North America! At night it uses a directional antenna to protect the Class A radio station on 770 kHz, co-owned WABC in New York City.
