Zachry Co. / General Contractor / San Antonio, Texas" and "Future Home of / KCOR / Radio / 1350KC / Television / Channel 41". The photo dates to the early 1940s, when KCOR was first going on air. KCOR was licensed and operated by Raoul A. Cortez (1905-1971), a pioneer of Spanish-language media in the United States. Cortez later established the KCOR-TV station in 1955, and programmed his stations to serve the Spanish-speaking community in Texas.
