It is owned by Liberman Broadcasting and airs a Regional Mexican radio format, with sports programming heard on weekday afternoons. Programming is simulcast on 101.7 KNTE, an FM radio station in Bay City, Texas, about 75 miles southwest of Houston. KEYH and KNTE serve as the Spanish-language flagship stations for the Houston Astros Radio Network and the Houston Rockets.By day, KEYH broadcasts with 10,000 watts. But because AM 850 is a clear-channel frequency reserved for 50,000 watt Class A KOA in Denver, Colorado, KEYH must reduce power at night to 185 watts. The transmitter is off Denver Miller Road in Sugar Land, Texas.
