Cedar Hill, Texaswith translators that serve Tyler (K261CW, 100.1 FM), the Sherman/Denison area (K257EV, 99.3 FM), and Wichita Falls (K202DR, 88.3 FM).
The station was established on
July 11, 1974. The station's call letters, which are said to represent a "new era in broadcasting," are shared with Dallas public television station KERA-TVchannel 13; both are owned by North Texas Public Broadcasting Inc., a non-profit corporationregistered in the state of Texas. While there is cross-promotion between stations, each operates its own pledge drives.
KERA 90.1 produces topic driven local radio news programs, spot news and music programs mixed with national news, talk shows and radio magazine programs from sources that include National Public Radio (NPR), Public Radio International (PRI), American Public Media (APM) and BBC Radio.
Local programs include "Think", hosted by Krys Boyd and "CEO", hosted by Lee Cullum. Jeff Whittington hosts the call in radio talk show "Anything you Ever Wanted to Know". "Think" and "CEO" also each have television versions, seen on KERA-TV.
The station also presents the locally produced music program "90.1 at Night" hosted by Paul Slavens, which airs Sunday nights from 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Like other noncommercial stations in the United States, KERA broadcasts on-air pledge drives to raise money to pay for programming. The majority of KERA's funding comes from membership pledge drives. Additional funding is accrued through corporate sponsorship and underwriting announcements. Only 10-percent of the station's funding is government supported.
