KCMC (940 AM, "Hits 105") is a radio station broadcasting a classic hits format, simulcasting KTTY 105.1 FM New Boston, Texas. Licensed to Texarkana, Texas, USA, it serves the Texarkana area. The station is currently owned by Texarkana Radio Center.

KCMC was operated from a broadcast facility located on State Line Avenue on the Texarkana, Texas side. During that time the station operated at 250 watts, increasing power to 1000 watts in 1967.

Dave Hall was the News Director and broke the 'Fouke Monster' story, in Fouke, on a Sunday morning via a mobile car phone.

In December 2011, the then-KTFS was taken off the air after vandals committed vandalism at its broadcasting tower. The station filed a Special Temporary Authority to Remain Silent with the FCC on January 9, 2012, which they honored shortly afterward. [1]

On December 20, 2012, KTFS returned to the air with a news/talk format, just two days before the station's license was set to expire.[1]

On April 19, 2013, KTFS changed their format to classic hits, simulcasting KTTY.[2] The station changed their call sign to the current KCMC on March 21, 2014.
