1230 is currently Regional Mexican “Radio Ranchito” KQUE owned by Liberman Broadcasting. The Houston Chronicle reports it will be leased to local businessman Jesse Dunn, who will move the KCOH calls and programming to 1230 when La Promesa takes over 1430.

KCOH was the oldest African-American owned station in Texas. Its owner, Michael Petrizzo died in January at the age of 89 triggering this chain of events.
