A week after KXTN 107.5 yanked the rug from under our chanclas by announcing a format change that basically meant no more Tejano music on the local airwaves, entrepreneur Carlos Lopez has stepped in.

Lopez — whose family owns and operates radio and TV properties in Victoria and Corpus Christi — has launched KLMO Tejano 98.9 FM in the Alamo City.

KLMO will broadcast at 92,000 watts, covering the entire city. Lopez’ brothers Humberto Lopez Jr. and Luis Holmero Lopez will serve as general manager and operations manager, respectively.
