In the 1980s, the station aired beautiful music with the call sign KXTC. The call letters were meant to imply "Ecstasy". 790 became Spanish-language KOOR in the late 1990s until changed to KFPT by CBS Broadcasting, implying "Fresno's Progressive Talk" and would become the market's second-most listened-to AM station.
In February 2007, KFPT AM 790 was purchased by Peak Broadcasting from CBS as part of a deal involving other stations including News/Talk KMJ, AM 580. It was then sold to Fat Dawgs 7 Broadcasting. The sale included a non-compete clause to protect Peak's conservative talk station, KMJ. On April 2, 2007 KFPT changed their format from progressive talk to sports, with programming from ESPN Radio.
