History:
This station came on the air in 1987 and is thought to be running C-QUAM AM stereo.  It simulcast with WLLX-FM until August of 2008, when it switched to classic hits as "Classic Hits WLX".  The format was fed to at least three translators in Tennessee, including ones in Pulaski, Lawrenceburg and Mount Pleasant.  In the summer of 2014 the format was tweaked to lean more towards classic rock and the branding took on the frequency of the Lawrenceburg translator, as "105.3 The X". The station flipped again on Memorial Day of 2016, when it joined WLLX and WLXA in a simulcast of WLLX's country format.

After the cluster's owners sold a sister station to Educational Media Foundation, the rock format from that station (WTNX) migrated here, and the station began being heard on W226AF near the AL/TN border and W291DG in Lawrenceburg itself.
