KSBJ is a non-commercial Contemporary Christian music radio station based in Humble, Texas, broadcasting on 89.3 MHz FM in the Greater Houston area. KSBJ is owned and operated by the KSBJ Educational Foundation.

KSBJ can also be heard on several lower-powered repeaters as listed in the translators section of the Infobox. These stations cover both the Greater Houston area and other areas in Southeast Texas.

The KSBJ Educational Foundation owns and operates a youth-oriented Christian Contemporary/Hip-Hop music format, NGEN Radio, which, until the purchase of KXNG, was primarily broadcast on KSBJ-HD2. Like its parent station, NGEN also has a network of repeaters covering a large portion of Southeast Texas. In 2016, KSBJ acquired radio station KXNG, becoming NGEN's first full-powered analog FM signal.
