Hendryx selling two Alpine radio stations

Ray Hendryx, president and GM of KVLF-AM and KALP-FM in Alpine, has announced plans to put both stations on the market. 

KVLF went on the air in 1947 and has been known as the “Voice of the Last Frontier” for the past 66 years. 

Ray’s father, the late Gene Hendryx, was a part time announcer on KVLF when the station signed on, and bought controlling interest in the station a few years later. 

Gene Hendryx served as TAB Chairman in 1962, and later served three terms in the Texas House of Representatives. 

In 1976, he turned management of KVLF over to his oldest son, Ray, who had begun his announcing career while a student at Alpine High School in 1967. 

Ray’s two sons, Travis, and Otis, have held full-time and part-time positions at the station since 1992.  Both now live in Kansas. 

KALP-FM, a shared venture among the KVLF ownership and Brewster County ranchers Tom and Val Beard, went on the air in 1985. 

Hendryx said he had never planned to sell either operation, but family health matters have dictated a different direction. 

KVLF and KALP serve Brewster, Jeff Davis, and Presidio Counties of far West Texas. 

Station studios are situated next to Kokernot Field, which has been recognized as ”the finest little ballpark in Texas” by both Sports Illustrated and Texas Monthly magazines.
