The first two affiliates for ABC Radio/Skyview Networks’ newly syndicated Dana Cortez Show have been revealed.
In her home market of San Antonio, the show will air from 3-7pm afternoons on Alpha Media Rhythmic CHR “Energy 94.1” KTFM Floresville. The show had been airing in mornings at Univision’s “98.5 The Beat” KBBT from October 2015 until exiting at the end of July.
Prior to moving to KBBT, the show was based at “Kiss 97.3” KKSS Albuquerque and aired there until Univision sold the station to American General Media in 2017. KKSS will now add the show for the 10am-3pm slot.
Starting Monday August 20, Alpha Media San Antonio will add The Dana Cortez Show to PM drive on Energy 94.1 (KTFM).
The Dana Cortez Show, the #1 rated morning show in San Antonio, was previously affiliated with Univision. This past Friday, it was announced that the team has partnered with ABC Radio and Skyview Networks, making Cortez one of radio’s first Latinas to host a nationally syndicated show.
