Texas Public Radio has expanded coverage into Gonzales and the I-10 corridor with the return of KCTI 1450 AM to the airwaves of Central Texas. The station, acquired by TPR late in 2016, had been silent for almost a year. This expansion provides a vital in-depth news and information source to Gonzales, Luling, Flatonia, and surrounding areas, and continues the growth of Texas Public Radio, which already serves five other areas of the state.

You can find the coverage map of 1450 AM at this link.

TPR Debuts Six New Programs In January

Dec 16, 2016

Dear Friends, 

The strains of “Auld Lang Syne” will have a special poignancy for public radio fans this year, given the retirement of some of our long-time favorite personalities and shows. Diane Rehm will be retiring at the end of this year. Garrison Keillor has already left A Prairie Home Companion. And the Best of Car Talk, a compilation show that allowed the laughter to continue despite Tom Magliozzi’s death in 2014, will soon be discontinued.
