WGKX (105.9 FM, "Kix 106") is a Country music formatted radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It is owned by Citadel Broadcasting.


The station began as WHBQ-FM, sister to WHBQ (AM) 560 AM and WHBQ-TV, Channel 13. It was originally owned by RKO, up until 1972, when it was sold to new owners who flipped the station to Easy Listening music and adopted the WEZI calls on January 12, 1973. By 1983, after several ownership changes, the station became owned by Barnstable Broadcasting, which adopted the current call letters, format and the name KIX 106. Citadel bought the station and three others from Barnstable in 2004.
