Jonny Ramirez’s triumphant return to radio on Tejano 95.7

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Tejano is back on in San Antonio.

Alpha Media flipped the switch from La Ley to Tejano 95.7 on Feb. 22 and some familiar voices will hit the airwaves starting next week.

Valley-native Jonny Ramirez is back on the air for the morning drive and he brings a decades-long legacy of Tejano radio tradition with him.

“My radio career actually started by accident,” Ramirez said, noting that an internship at KURV in the Rio Grande Valley turned into a chance to DJ. “The station played 70% Tejano and 30% country and pop. It was a weird format, but it worked for them. It worked for us.”

It was the jumping point he needed and he bounced around stations before landing in Central Texas in May of 1993, where he made the leap to Tejano radio full time until KXTN stopped broadcasting in April 2019.

Radio programming consultant Bob Perry said the decision to change the format from regional Mexican radio to Tejano on 95.7 FM came down to the fact that San Antonio is the Tejano capital of the world.

“Tejano is a part of everything we do in San Antonio, and the people deserve to have a strong, solid signal with talent that reflects the Tejano community, and I am extremely proud to be a part of this,” Ramirez said.

Ramirez’s morning show airs Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Bo Corona will guide the afternoon drive on weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“San Antonio has long been known as ‘The Capital of Tejano Music’ and we are proud to bring it back to San Antonio”, said Program Director Alfonso Flores. “Tejano 95.7 is a station that is very committed to the community. Good things are to come.”
