COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M Athletics and its multimedia rights holder, Learfield’s Texas A&M Ventures, announced today changes to its radio affiliations within the DFW Metroplex.
Beginning this fall, fans will be able to catch Aggie game action and related programming on KXEZ 92.1 FM for the first time.

The respective, multi-year station agreements are with Mortenson Broadcasting, which owns KKGM, and Metro Broadcasters-Texas, which owns KXEZ. Fans living in the DFW Metroplex now will hear Aggie football games, men’s basketball games, coaches’ shows and the daily Aggie Report on 92.1 FM and 1630 AM.
