About Us

KTRL's mission is to extend the reach and expand the the horizon of Tarleton State University by informing, enriching and engaging its audience through radio and other media to enhance civic and cultural connections, to strengthen communities, and to reflect its listeners' sense of place.

KTRL is partnered with you and with KAMU-FM, Texas A&M's public radio station in College Station, to bring you the best in National Public Radio (NPR) news, classical and jazz programming. This allows KTRL to serve a large number of people in the Cross Timbers that do not have access to the quality programming from NPR that many people rely on for news and information.

KTRL is NPR for the Cross Timbers. For more details on our new programming lineup, click on the program schedule link to the right.

KTRL has a small staff that includes students and faculty from Tarleton State that you will hear occasionally on the air in addition to the voices from KAMU-FM.

KTRL 90.5 FM covers a 10-county area of the Cross Timbers from our transmitter located near Bluff Dale, with our strongest signal available in Stephenville, Granbury, Glen Rose, Hico, and Dublin, covering about 100,000 people in this core 3-county area, with nearly 1.5 million people in our extended full coverage area indicated by the outer salmon-colored area on the map below. KTRL has listeners from Comanche to Cleburne and from Hamilton to Weatherford, as well as in Fort Worth and Arlington.
