KSNY (1450 AM, "The Zone") is the first radio station to air in Snyder, Texas. Before the advent of FM as a mainstream medium, KSNY adopted a block format, meaning different formats at different times of the day. In the 1970s, KSNY started the day with News and Talk, then in the mornings played Country Music; in the afternoons Adult Contemporary and at night Top 40 formats. A Latin format with a Spanish-speaking announcer aired on Sunday evenings until 1980 and then moved to weeknights from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. The station also played Easy Listening and Gospel formats on Sunday mornings. KSNY was an affiliate of the Texas State Network, and most of its newscasts mirrored television airings (i.e. Noon, Six and Ten).

It was popular for the liner aired at 10:00 p.m. every night It's Ten p.m., Do you know where your children are?.

For many years the station was owned partly by the local manager Mel Z. Gilbert and the Wendell Mayes interests (KCRS Midland).
