K240EL is a translator radio station in Austin, Texas. The station operates on 95.9 MHz under the ownership of Entercom Communications. Its studios are in West Lake Hills, Texas (with an Austin address) and the transmitter is in West Austin.

The station streams online at its website, as well as on the HD3 carrier of sister station KKMJ-FM.

At noon on July 29, 2013, the station stopped simulcasting 1370 KJCE and launched an Urban AC format as "96.3 RnB". The first song on "RnB" was Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell.

On March 31, 2017, 96.3 R&B moved to 95.9 FM and changed calls to K240EL in order to eliminate interference with 96.3 KGID Giddings.

On October 31, 2018, at 3 PM, 95.9 flipped to classic hip hop as "Hot 95.9". [1]
