The future of KRTU as a world-class radio station is dependent on audience reach. The KRTU Tower Initiative will ensure that 91.7 can thrive in today’s increasingly competitive radio and media markets.
Broadcasting from a new tower with greater capacity will enable KRTU to meet the need of San Antonio’s rapidly expanding metropolitan area.

"Trinity’s KRTU 91.7 is the Jazz life blood for San Antonio-- playing, inspiring, sharing, promoting, educating an entire community for jazz, about jazz. As a personal member for over 6 years and now as a business partner with Bella On the River, I know first hand what an incredible resource that KRTU is and how KRTU truly contributes to and makes a difference in so many lives. And in return, the “on air” references and mentions of Bella’s sponsorship appeals to an audience, a listener, that Bella wants as a customer, as a guest, in the restaurant.
"The Tower Initiative gives us an opportunity to expand this reach and influence to the outlying communities through more powerful tower of reach, ‘the tower of power’ if you will for Jazz for San Antonio and beyond. I will remain a BIG KRTU Jazz 91.7 supporter and pledge my commitment to the Tower Initiative."
