KNEK (branded as Q95-5) airs a simulcast of sister station KRRQ's Urban Contemporary format in the Lafayettemarker, Louisianamarker area. It broadcasts at 1190 AM and is under ownership of Citadel Broadcasting. It was a sister station of KNEK-FM until it was sold to The Last Bastion Station Trust, LLC upon merger of ABC Radio. After Citadel swapped KRDJ with KNEK-FM, they are now sister stations again.

KNEK started as a country and western station owned by Dee Sylvester and had a popular radio personality named Cholly Charles in the mid 1980s. The station aired from 6 am to sunset playing country music and broadcasting local news and sports along with agricultural updates for the farmers of St. Landry Parish.

Because it shares the same frequency as Clear Channel station XEWK-AM at Guadalajara, Jaliscomarker in Mexicomarker, this station only operates during the daytime hours.

As of April 29, 2009; KNEK-AM is now dark due to “failure of transmission facilities” and “the need for replacement and repair of certain transmission equipment.”
