WILK-FM (103.1 FM, "WILK Newsradio") is a commercial FM radio station licensed to serve Avoca, Pennsylvania. The station is owned by Entercom Communications, through licensee Entercom Wilkes-Barre Scranton, LLC, and broadcasts a news/talk format. Its broadcast tower is located east of Yatesville, Pennsylvania at ( ). The station serves as the premiere station in the regionally simulcast WILK News Radio Network, a network of four radio stations owned by Entercom carrying local news and talk programming.
The station signed on for the first time in 1976 with the WQEQ call sign, branded as QE 103. Originally licensed to serve Freeland, Pennsylvania, the station aired a syndicated Top 40/Soft Rock radio format with some local news. From the late 1980s and into the early 1990s, the station switched to an oldies music format and was branded as Oldies 103. The station's programming during this time period was simulcast on sister station WXPX AM 1300. The simulcast relationship between the two stations exists today even though both WQEQ and WXPX went through a number of call sign changes, format changes, ownership changes, and the 103.1 MHz FM allocation being moved to Avoca. The stations, now WILK-FM and WKZN, both simulcast the WILK News Radio network.
