WFKS (95.1 FM), branded as KISS 95.1, is a Top 40 station serving Florida's Space Coast area. The iHeartMedia, Inc. outlet broadcasts at 95.1 MHz with an ERP of 4.3 kW and is licensed to Melbourne, Florida.

History[edit]

The station was branded as 95.1 The Beat until March 14, 2007 with a rhythmic contemporary format.

On July 22, 2011, the station changed its call letters to WFKS,[1] after those calls were dropped by sister station WNWW in Jacksonville earlier in the month upon that station's rebranding as "Radio NOW".

However, in November 1, 2013, it is not looking forward to changing the call letters from WFKS as WNWW in Jacksonville, FL rebranded again back to 97.9 Kiss-FM and will not change its call letters. Instead in July 31st, 2014, it changed it's call letters to WKSL, which originally was from sister station, now called, WNCB, which used to be a Kiss-FM station.
