KHYI (95.3 FM) is a radio station with an alternative country music format, focusing on Texas music. The station's city of license is Howe, Texas; it serves the areas between the Metroplex and the Sherman/Denison area, making it a rimshot station. Studios are located along Greenville Avenue in north Dallas, and the transmitter site is northwest of Gunter in Grayson County.

The station was authorized in late 1991, and was licensed in late 1994. It replaced the station that had been on the 95.3 dial position at the time, KSSA-FM now KRVA-FM. That station had begun broadcasting in 1969 under the call sign KAWB. KAWB moved to 106.9 to allow the 94.9 station at Arlington, TX KLTY (then known as KHYI) to upgrade from class C1 to class C, and raise power from 36,000 watts to 100,000 watts. The 95.3 channel was moved outward to the unserved town of Howe, where the new station operates to this day.

KHYI is also an affiliate of the Mean Green Sports Network, and carries University of North Texas football and men's basketball games.
