57 Years on the Air!
Christian Radio broadcasts were first heard in Houston on March 9, 1962. KHCB began airing non-commercial Christian programming at 105.7 FM. 57 years later, the ministry has grown to a network of 55 outlets in five states, broadcasting in three languages. The mission has remained the same from day one which is to provide Biblical truth with an emphasis on the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. This past year five outlets were added. Three stations in San Angelo were purchased from Criswell College. Two of the three stations now broadcast Radio Amistad programming. The outreach in Louisiana expanded into the city of Springhill with one station in English and the other in Spanish. The 55th outlet will be added this month in Lubbock,Texas.
KHCB opened a Twitter account this past year which provides another way to connect with listeners and provide up to date information about the programs and music segments.
Give thanks to the Lord for using KHCB by radio, the internet, and phone apps to help you “Keep Him Close By”.
