The Nielsen April PPM released today.

KSBJ PD Troy West told HisAir, “I am very proud of my on air team who continue to work so hard to connect people more deeply to God. KSBJ Programming is not the only reason we are seeing success. We have such a tight team of many departments that contribute in so many important ways. We have not seen this type of close knit team work since I have been PD here. We celebrate this moment, but all Glory to God.”

In addition the KSBJ Morning Show is #1 Women 25-54 with a 14.7 Share.

KSBJ signed on the air July 8, 1982 as a Christian Rock station, but moved toward CCM soon after. Originally KSBJ was at 88.1 MHz, but changed frequency to the current 89.3 MHz in 1987, as a part of a frequency switch with then KFTG/Santa Fe.

Over the years KSBJ has expanded first with low power translators to cover more potential listeners in areas outside of the main KSBJ signal range, then acquired full power facilities, beginning with KIOX-FM in El Campo, TX

In 2017, KSBJ filed a minor modification to move the signal from its longtime transmission site near Splendora, TX to its current site in North Houston. With the tower move the ERP was lowered from 100kw to 87kw. In 2019 the purchase of KETX-FM and KSHN helped the main signal in areas KSBJ had little to no previous reach.

Currently KSBJ sister stations include KEHH, KHIH, KXBJ, and KXNG. KSBJ is owned and operated by the Hope Media Group.

  • Congratulations to KSBJ and Hope Media for your high ranking in the market. Good job! But, let’s be honest, you have no real competition in the Christian marketplace in metro Houston. But job well done nevertheless!
