KTEK is a radio station serving the Houston, Texas market. Broadcasts on 1110 kHz, this station is under ownership of Salem Communications and is a flagship station of the Biz Radio Network. KTEK broadcasts daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. providing business related news, and daily market reports.

KTEK cannot broadcast at night due to its sharing the same frequency as clear channel KFAB in Omaha, Nebraska.

History[edit]

KTEK in the 1990s once featured Vietnamese language programming and was declared the Voice of Vietnam in Houston. Salem Communications then acquired the station for its Christian-related programming. Then on December 11, 2007, Biz Radio bought the station as part of breaking away from a lease agreement with Multicultural Broadcasting's KXYZ, making KTEK the first Biz Radio O&O station; however, the signal is much weaker than its previous affiliate KXYZ. On March 16, 2010, KTEK was sold back to Salem. The deal included the cancellation of BizRadio’s 2008 loan from Salem, estimated to be worth $1.26 million USD. Salem also received $800,000 in cash, but BizRadio will be allowed "purchase airtime for programming on certain stations" owned by Salem, according to the agreement.[1]
