KHCB (1400 AM, 101.5 FM) is a terrestrial AM radio station, paired with an FM translator, licensed to League City, Texas, United States, and serving the Greater Houston area. The station is currently owned by Houston Christian Broadcasters, Inc.

1400 AM originally was licensed to Galveston, Texas as KFLX at 1110 kHz on April 27, 1927. It was moved to 1370 kHz in 1938, finally settling on 1400 kHz in 1943 and operating full-time with 250 watts around the clock; the station (by this point operating as KLUF) became the Island's legendary "Big 14 KILE" Top 40 format on September 2, 1957. "The Big 14" was sold to Houston Christian Broadcasters in 1991, changing the call-sign to KHCB (AM) and moving its format to Spanish Christian. After nearly 80 years of broadcasting from the Island, the facility was relocated to the mainland, near Texas City, Texas in 2009.[1]
