KRCC began in 1944 as a carrier current public address system for the Colorado College campus. In April 1951, it received the first noncommercial FM license in the state of Colorado, operating from a World War II surplus transmitter.

Originally a training program for radio and speech students, it became a conventional college radio station in 1968 after Colorado College dropped radio and speech classes. In 1978, the station opened its microphones to the greater Colorado Springs community, paving the way for it to become an NPR member station in 1984. From the 1980s onward, it built a series of translators to help better penetrate its largely mountainous service area.


Programming is simulcast on KECC in La Junta (740 watts). Query the FCC's FM station database for KECC and KCCS in Starkville (south of Trinidad, Colorado) (370 watts). Query the FCC's FM station database for KCCS.
