WESI is a commercial radio station located in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, broadcasting to the Louisville, Kentucky area on 105.1 FM Broadcasting.

The station previously aired an active rock music format branded as "Everything That Rocks" (formerly "New Rock 105.1"). As of (at least) July 15, 2009, the then-WLRS format changed to "FM TALK" and features the Mancow radio show in the morning.

From 1964 to 2000, WLRS operated on 102.3 FM. For more on the history of the original WLRS, see WXMA.

Previous to picking up the WLRS calls in 2000, 105.1 FM played contemporary Christian music as WXLN.

On November 1, 2012, WLRS dropped its talk format and began stunting with Christmas music, branded as "Christmas 105.1". On Christmas Eve 2012, WLRS has renamed themselves "Easy Rock 105.1" with a soft AC/oldies format.[1] On January 30, 2013, WLRS changed their call letters to WESI, to go with the "Easy Rock 105.1" branding.

WESI is owned by Alpha Media.[2]
