KTCX is an Urban Contemporary formatted radio station in Beaumont, Texas. It serves the entire Golden Triangle and is owned by Cumulus Media.

KTCX "Magic 102.5" was launched in 1998 based on its current format. Because it is the market's only Urban-formatted station of any kind, it plays a variety of Hip Hop, R&B, Soul, Old School, and Gospel music to cater to all African American demographics including the Mainstream audience to the Adult audience, thus making it one the highest rated stations (sometimes #1) in the Triangle. It is the home of the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show. However, KTCX was originally an Urban AC station playing R&B and Old School only through "The Touch," a subsidiary of the ABC Radio Network. That was till 2001 when it redirected its format and added Hip Hop product to the playlist as most Hip Hop listeners had to rely on out of town Houston station KBXX for it beforehand.

The station and its branding is not to be confused with Houston R&B station KMJQ "Majic 102.1", which rebranded from "Majic 102" to avoid it.
