KKYX (680 AM) is a classic country music radio station owned by Cox Radio. It is licensed to, and headquartered in, San Antonio, Texas. The station also carries play-by-play of the San Antonio Missions of the Texas League (Minor League Baseball). Its studios are located in Northwest San Antonio near the South Texas Medical Center complex, and the transmitter site is in west Bexar County west of the city proper. KKYX morning personality Jerry King is also a member of the Country DJ Hall Of Fame.
KKYX initially signed on the air as KTAP in 1926. It became KABC, then KGBS, KENS, and KBAT in the 1960s. The current KKYX call-sign finally came on September 4, 1972, and had the country music format ever since. It became a major outlet for country music that serves much of south Texas. During the 1970s and early 1980s, KKYX was ranked one of the top ten country music radio stations in the United States.
KKYX has a fairly large coverage area, covering a large area of southern Texas, including the entire San Antonio and Austin radio markets, along with areas around Victoria, Texas. Grade B coverage can be received in the Corpus Christi and Houston areas. About 100 counties were claimed to be part of the KKYX listening area.
