KBST-FM (95.7 FM, "K-Best 95.7") is a radio station licensed to serve Big Spring, Texas. The station is owned by Kbest Media, LLC. It airs a Country music format.[2] KBST FM is considered the best and most prolific radio station in Howard County. The morning show, "Gooney in the Morning", hosted by Big Spring native comedian Clay "Gooney" Vickers, is simulcast on KBST AM, Suddenlink Cable Channel 2, Antenna Receiver Channel 99, Stanton Cable Channel 10, and kbst.com.

The station was assigned the KBST-FM call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on March 17, 1989.[1]

The station began in 1961 as independently owned KFNE (K-Fine) on 95.3 mHz. Studios and transmitter were in a downtown building. Long time Texas Broadcaster John B. Walton Jr had a 1/3 interest in the sixties until the station was sold to cross town 1270 KHEM (AM) (now deleted). The transmitter was moved to the nearby hill above Big Spring.
