WLKI (100.3 FM) is an American FM radio station licensed to and based in Angola, Indiana, and serving portions of northeastern Indiana, northwestern Ohio, and south-central Michigan. Owned by Coldwater, Michigan businessman Stephen Swick, the station airs a hybrid adult contemporary/Hot AC music format branded as FM's Best, FM 100.
The station began broadcasting on November 7, 1969 at 100.1 on the FM dial, and became WLKI on July 15, 1974. WLKI was owned by Lake Cities Broadcasting Corporation until April 2008, when it was sold to Stephen Swick (under the corporate name Swick Broadcasting Corporation) for $3.8 million along with sister stations WTHD in LaGrange, Indiana and WLZZ in Montpelier, Ohio (both country-formatted), and sports WBET/oldies WBET-FM in Sturgis, Michigan.
WLKI's primary service area includes the cities of Angola, Fremont, Clear Lake, Orland, and Waterloo in Indiana, Coldwater, Bronson and Camden in Michigan, and Edon, Ohio. Its signal reaches portions of DeKalb County, and can be heard as far away as Hudson, Michigan although reception farther east is impeded by co-channel WNIC in the Detroit area.
The WLKI airstaff includes The Morning Renegades - Russ Ryder & Brett Briscoe, middays with Chuck Rowe, afternoons with Andy St. John and news and sports with Jim Measel. Steve Swick will occasionally contribute to station programming as a co-host.
In November, 2009, WLKI began broadcasting in HD, allowing Swick the opportunity to place two additional signals into the Angola area. The former 92.5 translator (W223AM) in Bronson, MI, and 99.5 translator (W258AO) in Hillsdale, MI, were both purchased by Swick, and moved to the WLKI tower site, with the former becoming 92.7 (W224BY Angola, IN), and the latter becoming 101.3 (W267BE Angola, IN). 92.7 is now rebroadcasting WLKI-HD3's ESPN Radio. On December 31, 2009, 101.3 became the home of "U-Rock 101-3", which is also broadcast on WLKI-HD2.
