Off the Air: 104.1 KRBE Houston

KRBE-FM (104.1 KRBE), is a Top 40 (CHR) radio station based in Houston, Texas, United States. The studios located in Suite 700 of the Chase building at 9801 Westheimer Road in the Westchase District in western Houston. The transmitter facilities located in Missouri City. KRBE is owned and operated by Cumulus Media.

On October 31, 2005, Susquehanna announced it had reached an agreement to sell its radio assets, including KRBE, to a partnership including Cumulus Media (which also owns Houston radio stations KIOL-FM (103.7) and KFNC-FM (97.5)) as well as Bain Capital, Blackstone Group and Thomas H. Lee Partners. The deal was expected to be completed sometime during the first half of 2006. Sometime after the purchase, KRBE quietly changed their logo from “104 KRBE” to “104.1 KRBE”, a technically more accurate description of the station.

In late January 2006, KRBE launched its digital HD signal. Its HD2 signal began simulcasting sister KHJK in late 2007. The HD3 signal is still undetermined.

For the last few months, KRBE have been using Kissville jingles. Listen to how they sound!
