KTAE Info

We (the Lundgren family of Elgin), are operating KTAE 1330 AM under an agreement we signed with the Smitherman family in August of 2007. Since then, repairs have been made to the tower site and we have improved the modulation (loudness) of the signal. You may have noticed the difference. ... See more Our plan is to upgrade the signal so it can be heard from Hillsboro to San Antonio. We changed the call sign from KMIL to KTAE. As you may recall, KTAE was the old Taylor 1260 AM Radio call sign. The KTAE signal on 1330 AM (like the old KTAE 1260 AM signal) is located in the heart of the blacklands and serves the same area. For more than 1/2 century, the KTAE 1260 AM tower (located north of Taylor) shared much of the same coverage area with KMIL 1330 AM in Cameron. Both stations served their communities with a level of excellence that surpassed many of the biggest city stations. KTAE 1260 AM changed dramatically in the 1990's when the station was sold and changed formats. Thereafter, for all intents and purposes, Taylor lost its legendary radio station and it's destintive local sound, including it local news, farm news and it's Polka Hour. KMIL in Cameron and KRXT in Rockdale stepped into the void but it did not totally repair the damage. KTAE 1260 did not die. It was killed. In our opinion, the format change of KTAE 1260 AM was one of biggest mistakes ever made by the owner of a Central Texas radio station because it purposefully severed the ties between itself and the community it was licensed to serve. In August of 2007, the Smitherman's moved KMIL 1330 AM programming to 105.1 FM in order to better serve the Cameron area. In turn, we leased the 1330 AM signal from the Smitherman's and, with their cooperation, resurrected the KTAE call sign for 1330 AM. We were all determined not to make the same mistake with 1330 AM as the group owners of 1260 AM made when they turned their backs on the community they were licensed to serve. Therefore, we retained local news, expanding area news coverage, introduced more farm news programs and expended Polka to at least two hours a day, seven day a week. Currently, the primary signal of KTAE 1330 AM covers almost 1 million people and the secondary signal covers almost 2 million people. If you look at Cameron, Texas on the map, you will see that KTAE's transmitting tower is located almost perfectly to reach Temple, Austin, Waco and the Bryan/College Station markets. The station is listed in the Killeen/Temple Arbitron market, so it enjoys the market status of Temple, Texas stations. We always appreciate help from our listeners potential advertisers. So please mention KTAE 1330 AM to the managers and owners of businesses you know. Tell them you listen to KTAE and, you want to hear their ads on the air. Since advertising revenue is KTAE's essential source of income, advertisers are a necessary ingredient of KTAE's success.
