KGNC is a radio broadcast service in Amarillo, Texas, USA. It operates KGNC (710 AM) and KGNC-FM (97.9 FM). Both stations are owned by the Morris Communications Company since acquiring the Amarillo Globe-News Publishing Company in 1972. KGNC was formed when the Amarillo Globe-News Publishing Company purchased two radio stations, WDAG and KRGS. WDAG was the first radio station in Amarillo. On December 24, 1958, KGNC aired the first FM broadcast in the Amarillo region.

KGNC boasts a relatively large coverage area, due to its fairly high power (10,000-watt signal) and the surrounding area's high ground conductivity. KGNC provides at least secondary coverage of large portions of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and New Mexico, including such cities as Lubbock and Abilene, Texas; Clovis and Roswell, New Mexico and Garden City, Kansas. Under the right conditions, KGNC's signal has been received during the day in the suburbs of Dallas and Oklahoma City. At night, KGNC can sometimes be heard as far west as Tucson, Arizona.

KGNC-FM airs a country music format while KGNC broadcasts news and provides syndicated talk show programs such as The Rush Limbaugh Show.

Both stations are responsible for activation of the Emergency Alert System in the Amarillo area.
