KOFX (92.3 FM), known as 92.3 the Fox, is a radio station broadcasting a Classic Hits format. Licensed to El Paso, Texas, United States, the station serves the El Paso area. The station is currently owned by Entravision Holdings, LLC.[2] It shares studio facilities with three other radio stations and television stations KINT-TV and KTFN, all of which are located on North Mesa Street/Highway 20 in northwest El Paso, and its transmitter is located atop the Franklin Mountains in the El Paso city limits.

The station was founded by a partnership of Hobbs, NM businessmen called "The Media Company". They had operated the Humble City, NM AM/FM (now KYKK and KZOR). The original construction permit called for the antenna to be colocated with KDBC-TV, though this was never built. The station went on in 1978 as KFIM usually shown as 92 KF/M and featuring a Top 40 format. The transmitter was installed at KFOX-TV tower.

Studios were located in Peppertree Square Shopping Center on Mesa Street in West El Paso Center.

ELP Broadcasting Associates bought the station 1986 and changed call letters to KOFX. Station sold in 1994 to Magic Broadcasting and the studios moved to 4105 Executive
