KEDA was founded by Manuel G. Davila on March 17, 1966. “La Tejanita,” as it was called in its inception, was one of the first Tejano radio stations in the United States and continues to support local Tejano and Conjunto acts after 53 years.
The station was bought by Jerry Benavides in August 2011 and continues its reign as the longest running family-owned radio station in San Antonio. It was recently added to the FM dial at 99.9 and is broadcast worldwide at KEDAradio.com and the free KEDA app for mobile devices.
