Jerry King joined KKYX in San Antonio in 1975, and worked every shift at the station, ultimately becoming Morning Show host and Music Director. He has helped the careers of many musicians, notably George Strait, who first heard his music played on the radio on Jerry's show.
One of Jerry's earliest influences was Country Disc Jockey Hall of Famer' Charlie Walker who introduced him to Country music via his show on San Antonio station KMAC. Jerry was a musician during high school and later attended the Elkins Institute in Dallas, a radio school.
In March of 1965, Jerry got his first radio job at KBER in San Antonio. He later worked at stations in Benton and Alice, Texas, before returning to San Antonio.
Jerry has generously helped out as emcee, judge, consultant or participant in parades, festivals, fundraisers and contests within the immense coverage area of 50,000 watt KKYX.
“Cousin" Jerry has been a cornerstone member of the KKYX team for nearly 40 years. He is a true legend in San Antonio broadcasting and a member of the Texas Radio Hall of Fame and the Country Music DJ Hall Of Fame.
