Best Radio Station - 2002
Readers' Choice: 94.5 The Buzz
"Jazz in All Its Colors" is the motto of Texas Southern University's radio voice, and they live up to those fine words. Not many stations can boast a palette quite like KTSU's rainbow of gospel, jazz (Latin and Anglo), hip-hop, blues, zydeco, R&B, oldies, soul and reggae. There are also the commentaries, profiles and historical reminiscences of Frank Torry, a walking, talking compendium of all things African-American in Houston. Props also go out to the station for allowing the still-running Kidz Jamm on the air way back in 1983, when mainstream radio outlets were insisting that rap was just a fad. KTSU knew better than those folks then, and when it comes to running a quality radio station, they still do.
