WBST (92.1 FM), is a National Public Radio-affiliated station in Muncie, Indiana. Studios and offices are located at Ball State University. WBST serves as the flagship station for Indiana Public Radio, which can be heard on four other stations in East-Central Indiana.

Programming mainly consists of news & talk programs provided by National Public Radio as well as Classical music.

David Letterman began his broadcasting career at this station, where he was fired for treating Classical music with irreverence.

In 1997, programming from WBST expanded to 4 newly licensed full power stations outside of WBST's primary coverage area to bring the rest of East-central Indiana an outlet for Public Radio. These stations include:
