KEAN-FM (105.1 FM) is a radio station that serves the Abilene, Texas, area with Country music. Formerly owned by Clear Channel Communications, it was purchased in 2007 by Gap Broadcasting. What eventually became Gap Central Broadcasting (following the formation of GapWest Broadcasting) was folded into Townsquare Media on August 13, 2010.[1]

Frequency used in early sixties by KWKC-FM. That station's antenna was at the studios of co-owned KWKC AM at 2500 Butternut. This station was a sister of KNTO in Wichita Falls, Texas. The FM was turned off in the late sixties, prior to a sale. An AM across town (KNIT 1280) asked to rent this site and buy the equipment, and filed for a new station which became KNIT-FM. KNIT AM/FM eventually became KEAN (KEAN had been used by current station KXYL in Brownwood). KWKC's next owner eventually filed for a new FM on 100.7 that became KORQ.
