KCHN (1050 AM) is a Houston, Texas, area radio station, licensed to Brookshire, Texas serving mostly Asian listeners with broadcasts in a mix of Indian, Chinese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Pakistani languages. Sports programming includes coverage of Houston Rockets games. The station also provides religious programs in Polish. It broadcasts on AM frequency 1050 kHz and is under ownership of Multicultural Broadcasting.
Originally licensed to Liberty, Texas in 1967 as KPXE, the facility was sold to Arthur Liu in 1997 and moved to Brookshire, Texas. This was a result of Trinity River Valley Broadcasting receiving a license and building an FM facility in Liberty (the current KSHN, affording them the opportunity to unload the 1050 facility).
Texas Chinese Radio (德州中文台) program is aired from KCHN on Monday through Friday from 7a.m. to 12p.m.
