KXTN-FM (107.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Tejano format.[1] Licensed to San Antonio, Texas, USA, the station serves the San Antonio area. The station is currently owned by Univision.[2] Its studios are located in Northwest San Antonio, and the transmitter site is in Elmendorf, Texas.

History[edit]

Prior to the current format, KXTN was known as KZVE "K-sauve 107.5, and Z-107.5 with a Contemporary Spanish format from 1988-1991 which was moved to the AM dial when KXTN and KZVE swapped frequencies. This lasted until 1996 with the launch of KPOZ. Before KZVE it was KBUC, a locally owned Country station which moved frequencies from 106.3 making room for Jazz station KTUF 106.3 (now defunct)

During 1988 to 1991 the station was KZVE 107.5 as a Contemporary Spanish station. KXTN-1310 and KZVE 107.5 swapped frequencies. KZVE stayed on air until KZVE become 1310 KPOZ as a Positive/Christian Format from 1997 to 1998 and then went on to simulcasting KXTN-FM.

Since 2009, the station has rebroadcast on sister station KESS-FM (now KFZO) in Lewisville via HD Radio on 107.9 HD-2 in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. However on June 29, 2013, with KESS suddenly flipping formats on the main station from Rhythmic Top 40 "Hot 107.9" to Regional Mexican as "La Jefa" (previously on KFZO, now KESS-FM), The KXTN simulcast was replaced with the "Hot" format on 107.9-HD2 for over 2 weeks.
