Welcome to the New 91.3 FM, providing public radio to the Permian Basin.
West Texas Public Radio relaunched with new ownership, new programming, and a stronger signal in May 2012 at 91.3 FM. In early 2011, Odessa College said it was unable to continue supporting KOCV. Marfa Public Radio – its neighboring public radio station in the Big Bend – answered the call. By the end of 2011, Marfa Public Radio had purchased the station in order to preserve public radio in the Permian Basin.
West Texas Public Radio (KXWT “Across West Texas”) believes that public broadcasting is a vital community service that Odessa and Midland will stand up to support at the New 91.3 FM.
