KAMA-FM (104.9 FM, "104.9 Latino Mix") is a Latin pop radio station serving the Houston, Texas, USA area. The Univision-owned station is licensed to Deer Park, Texas, and is a class C2 FM (equivalent to 50,000 watts at 500 feet). Its transmitter was previously located on the Wells Fargo building (across the street from One Shell Plaza) in Downtown Houston. When it upgraded to a class C2 station, the transmitter was moved to the 315 North Ennis Street site of KLTN. KLTN and KAMA-FM share an antenna. The stations studios are at the Univision building in Uptown Houston.
