Prior to 2005, KBEX was typically used as a stock call sign for fictional TV and radio stations in film, radio and television productions until the sign on of KBEX in Brenham, Texas (which held the calls until 2008) that year.
The station appears to have been featured in the pilot episode of MacGyver, when the helicopter MacGyver arrives in (from the movie Blue Thunder) lands there. The call letters are clearly seen on the top of the building.
