WLXF (105.5 FM) is a radio station licensed to serve Macon, Georgia.

History[edit]

Prior to September 2009, 105.5 carried a Sports Talk format as ESPN 105.5 The Fan, Middle Georgia's Only 24/7 Sports FM, under the callsign WIFN. On September 3, 2009, WIFN began stunting with TV theme songs, with liners promoting to tune in at 1:05 PM the next day for a big announcement. At that time, WIFN moved to 1500 AM, and 105.5 flipped to mainstream rock as Rock 105.5 with the new callsign WROK-FM. The first song on Rock 105.5 was Know Your Enemy by Green Day.[1]

On March 4, 2016, EMF Broadcasting acquired WROK from Cumulus’ Joule Broadcasting divestment trust for $625,000. EMF would flip WROK-FM to its K-Love network upon closing of the deal.[2] The sale closed and the switch to the K-Love format took place on May 25, 2016. On May 31, 2016, WROK-FM changed their call letters to WLXF.

Programming[edit]

Until May 25, 2016, along with the previous rock format, WROK-FM remained Macon's FM home for Atlanta Braves baseball and Georgia Bulldogs football.[1][3]

In October 2009, the station picked up The Regular Guys (simulcasted from sister-owned WNNX-FM in nearby Atlanta) for its morning drive slot.
