"Bristol Broadcasting Company" is a radio station chain operating 22 stations in three Southern United States markets: the Tri-Cities area of upper-east Tennessee and southwest Virginia (receiving its name from the twin cities of Bristol, Virginia and Bristol, Tennessee); Paducah, Kentucky; and Charleston, West Virginia.

In each market it operates a country music station with a rabbit mascot and the slogan "24 carrot country", a Top 40/CHR station under the title "Electric", and every News/Talk station carries the name "Super Talk". Each respective genre of stations include identical jingles, voice imaging and playlists. Some stations also share disk jockeys through voice-tracking for over nights. The only differences in these stations are their frequencies and call signs.
