1430 KCOH is on the move

Recommended Posts

If you have been following this story, you know that KCOH was recently sold after over 50 years of broadcasting from the KCOH studios on Almeda. Sadly, it seemed as if the longtime voice of the Black community was going to be silenced forever, but according to reports KCOH has struck a deal to move programming down the dial to 1230, once home to another longtime Houston radio staple, KQUE. KCOH programming will move to 1230 AM on your dial on 03/01/13, so make sure to tune in.

yes it is, I just hope this isn't a temporary solution to the problem. Hopefully KCOH will remain on the air quite awhile longer, eventually purchasing the 1230 signal as opposed to renting it from Liberman. I believe Skipper Lee Frazier is still on the air here in Houston. Last I heard, he has a show on KYOK in the afternoons. KYOK is located @ 1140 and is formatted with Gospel music.

KCOH was let down by the community it "serviced" but at the same time, KCOH did nothing itself to make it stand out and rely on history which ain't paying bills....Houston is such a sorry radio market

KCOH pimped itself as its sad you can pay a few bucks and get prime radio time to peddle your product on their best shows

They never seemed to have shows I was interested in listening to. Also, the times I tuned in, I was kinda offended by the silliness of the show topics.

Also, what are they doing to get their station on streaming radio. I listen to TuneIn on my mobile devices and they are nowhere to be found.

They have to get with the times.
