There are many ways to listen to 550 KTSA!

Listen Live

Radio

The easiest way to listen to KTSA is on the radio.  You can listen to us in crisp FM audio generally inside Loop 1604 at 107.1 FM.  If you are outside of Loop 1604, the best way to catch KTSA throughout most of Texas is at 550 on the AM dial.

Your computer

If a radio isn’t readily available, you can listen to KTSA anytime on your computer.  You can listen to KTSA anytime on KTSA.com.

Your smartphone

Your handy smartphone isn’t just helpful for getting that perfect meme-worthy selfie.  You can use it to listen to KTSA anywhere on TuneIn!

Instead of having your smart device at home listening to your conversations, you can listen to our conversations on it!  There are many ways to take advantage of KTSA’s offerings on your Amazon Alexa or Google Voice Assistant enabled device at home.  You can use all of the same Google tips below with your Android smartphone.
