Public license information
KTXC is a Spanish language radio station airing a regional Mexican format, licensed to Lamesa, Texas, broadcasting on 104.7 MHz FM. KTXC serves the areas of Lamesa, Texas, Midland, Texas, Big Spring, Texas, and Odessa, Texas, and is owned by Gray Television.
KTXC began in 1977 as KCOT on 104.7 MHz, an affiliate of KPET (690 AM). It was sold in 1983 to a group that controlled KBYG (AM) Big Spring. Signal was expanded to 100 kilowatts from an 800-foot tower.
Another station started at 100.3 FM in the area in 1987. In 1988 the two stations exchanged dial positions. This was reversed in 1996 when the southern signal for Lamesa, Big Spring and Midland returned to 104.7.
On August 21, 2002, Graham Brothers Communications announced that it would sell KTXC to Drewry Communications for $740,000. The deal marked Drewry's re-entry into radio, as the company had previously sold KSWO radio (now KKRX) in the company's homebase of Lawton, Oklahoma to Perry Publishing & Broadcasting Company in 1998.
On August 10, 2015, Raycom Media announced that it would purchase Drewry Communications for $160 million. The deal was completed on December 1, 2015. KTXC, along with KEYU-FM in Amarillo, were Raycom's first radio stations since the company sold WMC AM-FM in Memphis, Tennessee to Infinity Broadcasting Corporation in 2000.
On June 25, 2018, Gray Television announced its intent to acquire Raycom for $3.65 billion, pending regulatory approval. The sale was completed on January 2, 2019.
In 2021, it was announced that VCY America would acquire the station for $650,000.
