WLFW (93.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic country format. Licensed to Chandler, Indiana, USA, the station serves the Evansville area. The station is currently owned by Midwest Communications, Inc. and features programing from Westwood One.[2]

History[edit]

WJPS broadcast an oldies format until February 2005, when South Central, looking to capatilize on Regent Broadcasting's change of WYNG 94.9 to Sports Talk under ESPN Radio, converted the station to a country format, and changed the call letters to WLFW.

The staff is Tommy Mason (Morning Show Personality), Kim Kavanaw (Midday Personality), Rusty James (station Program Director and is heard afternoons), and in the evenings the station airs CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan.

It was announced on May 28th, 2014, that Midwest Communications will purchase 9 of the 10 Stations owned by South Central Communications. (This includes the Evansville Cluster which include WLFW along with Sister Stations WABX, WIKY-FM & WSTO) With this purchase, Midwest Communications will expand its portfolio of stations to Evansville, Knoxville and Nashville. [3] The sale was finalized on September 2, 2014, at a price of $72 million.[4]

On January 26, 2015 WLFW changed their format to classic country, branded as "93.5 Duke FM".[5]
