KKTL Becomes Hot 97.1

Hot 97 97.1 KTHT Houston

Historically, Rhythmic CHRs hadn’t performed very well in the Houston market (see 98.5 KHYS) but Cox had confidence with the sign on of “Hot 97-1″. After breaking it’s simulcast with sister “Oldies 107.5″, an electronic voice countdown began. The countdown didn’t reach 1 until the following day and “Hot 97-1, Houston’s Hottest Hit Music” was born. The KKTL-FM calls were later replaced with KTHT. The first song on “Hot 97-1″ was “Party Up” by DMX
