  • Eyes on Texas: A new world order when it comes to Horns on the radio

    Updated: 6 hr ago

    Texas officials really want to get the word out that Saturday's season opener against Notre Dame will be on a different Austin radio station. Six of them, in fact.

The flagship station is 104.9 The Horn, an FM signal that serves as the anchor for football, men's basketball and other top events.
