WLEW-FM is a radio station in Bad Axe, Michigan, serving the Thumb area of Michigan. It is owned by Thumb Broadcasting and broadcasts from studios on South Van Dyke Road in Bad Axe. Unusual for small-town radio stations, WLEW-FM is locally programmed and does not rely on satellite feeds for any of their music programming. The station features a local roster of disc jockeys. As of at least January 1, 2013, WLEW-FM is no longer affiliated with CNN. WLEW now airs national and international news sourced from The Associated Press.
WLEW-FM, known as "Cruise 102.1" ("The Thumb's Power Station"), broadcasts at 102.1 MHz FM with 50,000 watts of power. The station's adult hits format is a combination of classic hits and adult contemporary titles from the 1960s through the present. WLEW-FM was formerly a 3,000-watt easy listening music station at 92.1 until it changed frequencies and boosted its power in the late 1980s (with WIDL in Caro, which had been at 104.9, taking the 92.1 frequency).
