89.3 Houston

FCC Report 8/27: KSBJ Seeks To Increase Houston Coverage

KSBJ Educational Foundation is seeking a major upgrade to flagship 89.3 KSBJ Humble TX as it applies to move just outside the Houston city limits to the tower of Pacifica Foundation's 90.1 KPFT Houston with 87kW/159.6m. The move will improve KSBJ's coverage in the southwest suburbs of Houston. To make the KSBJ move possible, co-owned 89.5 KZBJ Bay City proposes to downgrade from a Class C2 to C3 and move to the tower of sister 96.9 KXBJ El Campo with 13kW/140m.

KSBJ Houston Shuffles Rebroadcasters

KSBJ Educational Foundation has closed on its $2.1 Million purchase of what was Spanish Oldies “Baila 96.9” KNTE El Campo, TX and flipped it to a simulcast of its Christian AC 89.3 KSBJ Humble/Houston as KXBJ. The addition of 96.9 which fills in signal holes on the southwestern side of the Houston market will also enable KSBJ to shift a few of its outlying signals to new programming. 89.5 KZBJ Bay City, 91.1 KYBJ Lake Jackson and 99.5 K258BZ Sugar Land will join 93.3 K227AI College Station and 99.7 K259AH Brenham will shift in July to the Christian CHR “NGen Radio” fed by KSBJ-HD2 and 92.5 KWUP-HD2 Navasota. With the addition of 96.9, KSBJ has also shuffled its airstaff and refreshed its imaging and jingles.
