KJIN is a 1,000 watt AM station in Houma, Louisiana, broadcasting most of the ESPN Radio network programming with some locally produced programming.

History

This station was originally KCIL in the 1950s. This station however, has held the KJIN callsign for most of the past 30 years except for a 2 1/2 year period between 2000 and 2003 when it held KFXY which was the former callsign of today's KMYO. For most of its recent past, it was an Am sister relay to KCIL, however the former owners Guaranty broadcasting, installed the ESPN sports format on the station to provide listeners in the area with a sports station that was listenable in the Houma area as the nearest sports stations were up to 50 miles away at the time.
