Corpus Christi, TX – Local non-commercial FM broadcast station KLUX-HD,  has been selected as a recipient of the National Gabriel Award for “Religious Radio Station of the Year”.  The award is given for a station’s ability to uplift and enrich the human spirit with its total programming and community service.  The Gabriel Awards, now in its 52nd year, recognizes outstanding messengers of God’s Good News in our media culture.

Entrants go through a highly selective process of preliminary screening and blue ribbon judging.  Blue ribbon juries only present an award in a particular category when a level of excellence is achieved in values, content, creativity, artistic quality, technical quality and impact.

KLUX is in some very good company with other winners such as ABC News, NBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, New York Public Radio and the Eternal Word Television Network.  The 51st annual Gabriel Awards Presentation took place at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark on Thursday, June 2, 2016.

KLUX 89.5HD – “Good Company”, is in its 31st year of service to the Coastal Bend Community. The station is well known for its “Easy Listening” music format, public service, assistance in promoting the activities of local not for profit organizations, as well as its association with the Local Emergency Planning Committee and city / county Emergency Management offices.

KLUX Receives The 2016 “Outstanding Media Award”  from Emergency Management Association of Texas

The City of Corpus Christi – Nueces County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) continually evaluates new ways to reach the community for purposes of education and awareness.  Recently, a new county-wide emergency notification system was implemented.  “Citizen opt-in” is a key feature of this new tool, however getting citizen participation continues to be a challenge.  A long standing partner of the Corpus Christi – Nueces County LEPC, KLUX stepped up and developed radio ads promoting the emergency notification system free of charge.  KLUX runs the ads on a regular and continual basis as a service to the community.  The radio station also continues its commitment to the LEPC and local community by only broadcasting official emergency public information, unedited, anytime there is a need.  In addition, KLUX is always willing to provide advisement and support for the cause and mission of the LEPC and local emergency management programs.

Cathedral Sunday Mass LIVE Video Stream Now Available

Diocesan Telecommunications Corporation, producer of the LIVE weekly Television Broadcast of the Sunday Mass from Corpus Christi Cathedral, has begun streaming a live video feed, on the World Wide Web, in addition to its live telecast on KDF-TV in South Texas. According to Marty Wind, Executive Producer of the broadcast, a grant from the John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation has made possible the purchase of equipment which allows viewers from South Texas and around the world to watch the Cathedral Sunday Mass, LIVE on most Flash enabled desktop computers and most popular smart devices.

Those wishing to access the stream should point their browser to http://GoCCN.org and click the LIVE VIDEO icon at the top of the Home page. The LIVE VIDEO page features a Flash Viewer as well as links to players for most Smart devices and tablets including iPhone, Android, Blackberry, VLC, and Flash.

The Web streaming capability is part of an overall 3 year upgrade to HDTV, which is being made possible in part by the financial support of the John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation. Planned completion of the HDTV conversion is scheduled for this time next year. Also assisting in the project is Christus Spohn Health System, which has supported a portion of the air-time costs of the over-the-air broadcast for more than 18 years. Christus Spohn will fund the ongoing operational costs of the streaming server lease.

The Cathedral Sunday TV Mass has served South Texans since 1986, and is carried on Cable Systems throughout the area on KDF-TV, with the audio portion of the broadcast being carried live on KLUX 89.5HD1 over the air, and ListenLive at KLUX.org.
