KHSE (branded as Radio Caravan) is a commercial AM radio station licensed to Wylie, Texas. It is under ownership of Texas FM Radio, LLC. KHSE broadcasts a South Asian radio format, including music and talk aimed at the Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex.
This station began as KXXT under an unknown format in 2003, then a year later it was changed to KCAF when a sister station on 990 AM became KMSR (now KFCD). On July 22, 2004, the call sign changed to KHSE and was to become a full-time business talk and sports format, but KHSE was long rumored to be in a "testing" phase to align the signal on their new tower. However, a new tower had never been constructed. KHSE went bankrupt in August 2005 and was auctioned off two months later (along with sister station KFCD) to a "debtor-in-possession". After two years of signal testing, KHSE has resumed its broadcasting activities as "Radio Caravan".
On February 27, 2007, an application was filed with the FCC to transfer the license from Bernard Dallas LLC to Principle Broadcasting Network - Dallas, LLC [permanent dead link], which had entered into a transaction to acquire the two stations from the bankruptcy court. This transaction was never consummated.
Effective October 30, 2015, Bernard Dallas LLC sold KHSE and sister station KFCD to Mark Jorgenson's ACM Dallas V LLC for $475,000. Jorgenson then sold KHSE to John Hammond's Hammond Broadcasting, LLC effective November 20, 2015 for $1.5 million. Hammond Broadcasting in turn sold KHSE and translator K281CS to Texas FM Radio, LLC for $2 million effective October 22, 2018.
