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, "K-Best in the Morning," 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.
