KSHJ is a Catholic religious radio station airing the programming of Guadalupe Radio Network, and is owned by La Promesa Foundation. Its studio is located in Southeast Houston, Houston.

KSHJ began its broadcasting activities in 1953 as KCOH Radio and maintained its urban programming such as gospel, talk, blues, etc until 2013 when the KCOH programming moved to 1230 KQUE. KCOH programs included "Gospel Melody Time", "Person to Person", "Roex Health Update", "Confessions", "Making Memories", "Sports Rap", "Passion Zone", "This is for Grown Folks", "Person to Person Saturday Morning", and "Just us Oldies". In addition, KCOH was the Houston affiliate carrying University of Oklahoma football and men's basketball games.

In 2007, the station asked for donations from Houston's African American community; the owners threatened to sell the station to radio brokers.

In 2008, the Houston Press named the station as the "best radio station."

In November 2012, the Midland, Texas La Promesa Foundation acquired the station, and announced plans to launch programming in February 2013 through the Catholic-oriented Guadalupe Radio Network. The purchase by La Promesa was consummated on February 28, 2013 at a price of $2.141 million.
