KCMC (740 AM) is a radio station licensed to Texarkana, Texas, United States. It serves the Texarkana area. The station is currently owned by Texarkana Radio Center. Studios are located on Olive Street, just west of the border with Arkansas, and the transmitter is west of Texarkana city limits in the town of Nash.
The station was founded in 1933 by Clyde E. Palmer as a sister outlet to his Texarkana Gazette. It was Texarkana's first radio station. By approval of the Federal Communications Commission, station WDIX, Tupelo, Mississippi, was shut down, and operation of KCMC in Texarkana, Arkansas, was authorized. KCMC operated on 1420 kHz with 100 Watts of power.
On January 15, 2015, the then-KTFS changed formats to talk, branded as "Talk Radio 740".
On July 1, 2017, KTFS went silent. On November 28, 2017, KTFS’s callsign was changed back to KCMC. A news release on the KTOY website said that KCMC could return to the air from a new facility at some time in the future.
