I’m a Bear in the Morning, but as the Day Goes on, I’m a Ball of Sunshine
A Creative Mind
Crystal Raye is from a place you may know called Houston. She majored in Agricultural Communications and Journalism at Texas A&M College Station (apparently that “College Station” part is an important distinction).
She joined KTEX as the Promotions Director in February of 2021 and became on on-air personality (catch her at the Country Café, weekdays at noon) not long after. She’s worked at a variety of places, but the “desk job” never really suited her. Now she found the perfect balance, using her degree and creativity in the marketing aspect, while having the ability to go new places and meet interesting people as a DJ. There’s something new every day.
An Aggie Heart
A true country girl, in her free time she like to fish, hunt, drive county roads, and play cards with family. And, a true Aggie, her most prized possession is her Aggie ring.
