KCOR Beer Mug

images for KCOR Beer Mug
Beer mug inscribed with the KCOR-TV and radio call letters, and the image of the station's iconic Aztec mask. The Aztec mask, created by artist Pedro Teran for the station's studio in San Antonio, Texas, greeted employees and guests at the entrance.
The beer mug represents the early career of station founder, Raoul A. Cortez, who worked as a beer broker and distributor as a young man. It also represents an early advertising sponsor of the station, the local Pearl Brewery. This mug may have been an advertising premium given to audiences or as a gift to station employees.
