KTYM (1460 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Spanish-language Catholic radio format and is an affiliate of ESNE Radio. Licensed to Inglewood, California, United States, the station serves the Los Angeles area. KTYM is owned by El Sembrador Ministries of Chatsworth, California.

KTYM, formerly owned by Trans America Broadcasting, aired a mix of religious talk shows and paid programming. On March 17, 2014, Trans America reached a deal to sell KTYM to IHR Educational Broadcasting, operator of the Immaculate Heart Radio network.[1][2] However, the KTYM purchase was put on hold. On July 22, 2014, Immaculate Heart Radio announced the purchase of Spanish-language KHJ, which switched formats to Catholic religious programming.[2][3] In March 2015, the sale of KTYM to Immaculate Heart Radio was approved by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).[4] In September 2015, KTYM was sold to El Sembrador Ministries and became a Radio Católica affiliate. El Sembrador Ministries operates six other radio stations in California and Mexico and one station in Chicago.[5]
