KSLR (630 kHz) is a commercial AM radio station in San Antonio, Texas. It is owned by the Salem Media Group and airs a Christian talk and teaching radio format. The studios and offices are on McAllister Freeway in San Antonio.

KSLR is powered at 5,000 watts by day. But at night when radio waves travel farther, it reduces power to 4,300 watts. It uses a directional antenna at all times. The transmitter and four-tower array are off Rigsby Avenue (U.S. Route 87) in China Grove.[2]

Programming

KSLR airs shows from national religious leaders such as Chuck Swindoll, David Jeremiah, Alistair Begg, Jim Daly and John MacArthur. Several local San Antonio pastors are also heard. Hosts buy time on KSLR to air their programs and seek donations for their radio ministries. World and national news is supplied by SRN News, co-owned with KSLR.
