History

KTFM was originally a move-in, where in 1991 it had a Tejano format as KRIO ("94.1 K-RIO"), KRIO started out as a Texas Music Station then flipped to Country. The country format was short lived and lasted no longer than 8 months. This was during the Gillespie Broadcasting days which had a LMA with KONO AM/FM. but by September 1998 they would flip to Regional Mexican as KLEY ("La Ley 94.1"). On January 7, 2005 BMP would revive the KTFM calls after it acquired KLEY from Spanish Broadcasting System.

When KTFM was revived, its name was "Jammin' 94.1" and its focus was on Rhythmic Oldies and it did well in the San Antonio Arbitrons. But as the rating faded, KTFM shifted to a Rhythmic AC direction by adding more current product and putting less emphasis on older material to keep up with the changing musical taste along with the (mostly female) 25-44 and Hispanic demographics KTFM targets in the San Antonio radio market. By November 2008 KTFM began shifting to a Rhythmic contemporary direction and was added to the BDS Top 40/Rhythmic reporting panel.

In February 2009 KTFM tweaked the format and started broadcasting a Hot AC format.

For many years, the call sign "KTFM" was at 102.7 under the name "FM 103 The New KTFM", "Hot 103 KTFM", & "102.7 KTFM", where it was first an automated pop station, then album rock, them various flavors of Top 40 including an Urban AC leaning version of Top 40 trying to top then rival KSJL's numbers then to a Rhythmic/Freestyle leaning Top 40, and then back to rock. Today 102.7 carries the syndicated variety adult hits format "Jack FM" and uses the call letters KJXK.

By April 2010, BMP flipped KTFM to contemporary hit radio, with a heavy emphasis on Dance crossovers. It has also added mixshows to its lineup, just like its predecessor did at 102.7. The station is now a heavy rhythmic leaning CHR station.

On July 14, 2014, KTFM started airing Blondie & Nugget in the Morning weekdays 5AM - 10AM. 10AM-3PM is hosted my Michele McKnight, 3PM-7PM by Tony Cortez, 7PM-12AM by Auggie 5000. Weekends are hosted Nat Boogi and the station also runs In The Mix with DJ Grooves Friday and Saturday nights. Other mix show DJs include DJ M3 and DJ Swiss.

103.3 The App

On February 10, 2015 KTFM launched an alternative rock format on its HD2 sub channel, branded as "103.3 The App", relayed on FM translator K277CX 103.3 FM Terrell Wells, TX.[1] Throughout the month of February and March, "The App" started off with 10,000 songs in a row, with a blend of 90's and 2000's rock and alternative mixed with today's alternative. Eventually, the station began airing short commercial breaks and promoted concerts, such as the Maverick Music Festival and Vans Warped Tour, and bands such as Awolnation, Falling in Reverse, and Breaking Benjamin. It is unknown if "The App" will have live personalities.
