SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME
Mike Roberts, a native of San Antonio by way of Marion, Texas, began his career in radio when he enrolled in the Radio-TV-Film program at San Antonio College in 1975. While attending classes at SAC, he did an air shift and served as Public Service Director at KSYM, the college radio station.
As his skills improved Mike secured an internship at KTSA and became a regular performer on the popular SAC Show. In 1977, he got his first commercial broadcast job as afternoon jock and commercial producer at KBOP in Pleasanton, where he also ran the board for local sports broadcasts.
After earning his Associate Degree in Radio-TV-Film at SAC, Mike went to work at KONO as the overnight jock in 1978. Very quickly he moved up the roster to become the youngest afternoon drive personality in the city and the station’s Music Director.
In 1981 Mike moved to KONO’s sister station KITY-FM to do afternoon drive, later moving to middays and again serving as Music Director.
In 1982, after a brief stint at KESI-FM, Mike moved to El Paso and station KAMZ, where he set ratings records while gaining national notoriety as the number 17 rated air talent in the nation.
In 1986, Mike returned to San Antonio to join KSMG, Magic 105. After earning double digit ratings on the evening shift, he moved to afternoon drive and enjoyed the same ratings success there.
In 1998, Mike joined Clear Channel’s KQXT-FM where he remained on the air for three years. At the same time, he was also the station voice for WOAI. Mike returned to Magic 105 in 2003 where he is still broadcasting today.
