Public Radio Station Wins Readers’ Choice Poll
DALLAS/FORT WORTH: KXT 91.7 FM, the public Triple-A music station in North Texas, was recently voted Best Music Station in Dallas-Fort Worth in an online dallasnews.com readers’ choice poll. The station beat out KDGE 102.1 “The Edge” in the final round to take the top spot. In a tournament-style competition starting with a field of the top 13 music stations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, KXT won multiple rounds over several weeks of voting to eventually snag the top honor with 56.4 percent of the more than 7,000 final round votes.
Mary Anne Alhadeff, president and CEO of North Texas Public Broadcasting, the parent organization of KXT 91.7 FM, said, “In a Top 5 market with 55 radio stations on the dial, this isn’t just a victory for KXT but for all public radio stations in the country. It serves as a reminder of the value placed on independent, commercial-free radio by its audience. This is an achievement in which our listeners should take great pride.”
