KCTA (1030 AM) is a Christian talk radio station based in Corpus Christi, Texas. It is under ownership of Broadcasting Corporation of the Southwest.

KCTA operates on a clear channel frequency (not to be confused with Clear Channel the company) but is limited in its broadcasting hours. It must protect the Class A station on the frequency, WBZ Boston, from interference. KCTA is allowed to broadcast only during daytime hours.

(The station in fact holds an unusual "limited time" license (see FCC regulation 73.1725) which would allow operation at night during hours not used by WBZ. Since WBZ operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, there is in practice no difference between KCTA's "limited time" license and a traditional "daytime only" (see FCC regulation 73.1720) license.)
