KBGY (107.5 FM) is an American radio station licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to operate in Faribault, Minnesota, United States, and serving south central Minnesota, with a signal that reaches Mankato, Rochester and the southern suburbs of the Twin Cities.

The station, which signed on in 2001, is currently simulcasting KLCI in Albertville.

After receiving its license, KBGY aired a simulcast of the Christian music programming of WLKX ("Spirit FM").

In late 2004, KBGY was leased to a radio group which flipped the station's format to Spanish, the first such station on FM in Minnesota. The station aired Spanish-language broadcasts of select Minnesota Twins games. On August 4, 2006, the NBA announced that twelve Minnesota Timberwolves basketball games during the 2006-07 season would air on KBGY in Spanish.

KBGY was also a secondary outlet for Minnesota Wild hockey games, when pre-empted by flagship WCCO. These games, however, would be in English.

In January 2008, KBGY started simulcasting the morning show from KLCI 106.1 in Elk River, MN, and KDDG 105.5 in Albany, MN. KLCI and KDDG share a Country format and the moniker "Bob 106". In 2015, KBGY started simulcasting KLCI 106.1, its sister station, full-time.
