The work of generations of  KTAI FM 91.1 advisers and station managers has helped to keep Texas A&M University-Kingsville’s student radio station thriving for 40 years. A ceremony and perpetual plaque dedication held at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 22 in the radio and television wing of Manning Hall served to recognize those who have helped shape the station during the previous four decades.

“We are recognizing the faculty and staff who have contributed so much to KTAI with a perpetual plaque that will hang on the station’s walls,” said Dr. Manuel Flores, chair of the communications and theatre arts department. “By doing so, we insure their legacy and their vision are never far from mind as the station continues to evolve.”

The plaque will now hang inside the radio booth in Manning Hall.

The plaque dedication was the final event in a series of KTAI FM 91.1 40th anniversary festivities. On-air since February 1970, the station continues to serve both the A&M-Kingsville and greater Kingsville communities. The station plays various blocks of music including oldies, Top 40 and rock and frequently broadcasts Javelina athletics. The student-run station also provides the university’s communications students with the opportunity to learn different aspects of the radio industry.
