Since September 2010, KTRL 90.5 FM has provided the Cross Timbers area with non-biased national news programs, a mix of classical and jazz music, and other cultural programming.

KTRL provides the unique listening experiences you desire.

We know you have a choice when it comes to finding the music you love on the FM dial, but KTRL 90.5 offers things you cannot otherwise find locally, including NPR’s (National Public Radio’s) Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Local programs like Big Band BallroomBeatles & Beyond, and Standards, Jazz & The Blues on cannot be found anywhere else.

KTRL 90.5 FM is your station; these are your programs

Did you know KTRL 90.5 is also paving the way for the future of radio? Our studio serves as a living laboratory for Tarleton State University students with an interest in music production and radio broadcasting.

Every time you tune in, you’re supporting education. 

Listening, making monetary donations, and volunteering ensure your favorite music and news programs remain available for you to enjoy. You’re donating to the future of KTRL 90.5 and Tarleton Radio while providing students with the real-world, hands-on experiences they want and need as they prepare for their futures.
