A new pubradio station hit the airwaves at 7 a.m. today, according to the Dallas Morning News. KXT will play “an eclectic mix of indie rock, alt country and other styles,” according to parent station KERA in Dallas. It’s at 97.1 FM. KERA’s Arts & Seek blog has a photo of Mary Anne Alhadeff, KERA’s c.e.o., speaking the first words on the new station. The deal for the channel may be the biggest station purchase this year (Current, June 22, 2009), with KERA spending $18 million for a reserved noncommercial channel owned by religious broadcaster Covenant Educational Media.
