KLEB (1600 AM "The Rajun' Cajun") is a 5,000 watt daytime directional/ 250 watt nighttime directional radio station in Golden Meadow, Louisiana, broadcasting a mix of swamp pop and traditional cajun music.
KLEB was originally owned by the Egle family of Golden Meadow at its inception on August 16, 1963. One of its owners was Dick Egle, who served as Lafourche Parish president in the 1980s. The Egles also owned FM station KZZQ-Galliano, La., which was automated. In the 1980s, KLEB was owned by the Harold Callais family of Golden Meadow who also owned the local cable company. During its life under Callais Cablevision, programming was mainly country music. In the early 1990s, It shared programming with sister station KBAU-FM 94.3 (later KLEB-FM before being sold in 1995 and becoming WTIX-FM). This station was sold by the family in 1999 to Coastal Broadcasting of Larose who installed a Cajun music format on the station. KLEB simulcasted much of KLRZ's programming until KLRZ changed formats to sports in 2014. Since that time, KLEB has continued broadcasting the "Rajun' Cajun" format.
