1380AM Frequency History
1380AM signed on in 1953 as KUDL-AM, featuring a full service format. By 1968, they would make their second attempt at top 40 as "The Big 13-8." In 1975, the station returned to news as KCNW, but three years later the call letters would stand for "Kansas City's New Way" as the station would adopt a Contemporary Christian format. As the 90s were ending, KCNW underwent a brief transition to a Catholic format, but has since moved to a satellite religious presentation.
