KXTN-FM (107.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Tejano format.[1] Licensed to San Antonio, Texas, United States, 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]

KBUC-FM came to air in 1967 on 106.3 MHz, licensed to Terrell Hills. It was a locally owned station with a country format. In 1971, KBUC moved from 106.3 to 107.5 to make way for a new station, KTUF 106.3 (now KTKX 106.7); the move also included a power increase to 100,000 watts and a change in community of license to San Antonio.

From 1988 to 1991 the station was KZVE 107.5 as a Contemporary Spanish station, known as "K-Suave". In 1991, KXTN-1310 and KZVE 107.5 swapped frequencies. The KZVE format stayed on air until 1997.

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.

KXTN airs San Antonio Spurs games in Spanish; during game broadcasts, the station continues to air Tejano music through the Uforia app.

HD2[edit]

KXTN HD2 rebroadcasts KCOR 1350 AM.
