KOVE-FM (106.5 FM) is a Spanish-language radio station serving the Houston and Galveston areas from Galveston, Texas. KOVE-FM is owned by Univision Communications. The studios are in Uptown Houston and the transmitter is in Santa Fe, Texas.
KOVE has a construction permit for a new tower with a height above average terrain of 596 meters, replacing the current tower with a HAAT of 403 meters.
This station, launched in 1989, is not related to the earlier FM station launched in 1968 as "KGBC-FM" (106.1 FM), then sold, moved to 106.5 FM, and re-licensed as "KUFO" in 1974. That station, with shifting ownership and declining fortunes, became "KXKX" in 1979 and "KQQK" in 1986 before signing off forever and having its license cancelled by the FCC in March 1989.
