AUSTIN, Texas - The Austin City Limits brand is heading to the radio. Emmis Austin Radio's KGSR is partnering with the brand and debuting as a new station, Austin City Limits Radio, the company announced on Thursday.
The new station launches at 5 p.m. on Thursday and will be available on 93.3 FM, 97.1 FM and on ACL-Radio.com.
The general manager at ACL, Tom Gimbel, says it's a natural step for them to extend into radio.
"It's exciting to see ACL take this very natural next step by extending into radio," Gimbel said in a statement. "To partner with another of Austin's great music beacons in KGSR, one with a 28 year history in the market, is an incredible opportunity to enrich our local airwaves and serve the Austin community."
