WLKR is an AM radio station licensed to Norwalk, Ohio, operating on 1510 kHz during the daytime hours only. Its transmitter is in Norwalk and studios are in Milan, along with sister stations WLKR-FM and WKFM. The station is locally owned by Elyria-Lorain Broadcasting Co. and features a classic hits format with assistance from Dial Global's "Kool Gold" programming service.
The station first signed on as WLKR (AM), the AM side to the FM station. It became WVAC on January 28, 1991 (for the "VACationland"), and switched back to WLKR on May 30, 2002. WLKR carried Westwood One's Adult Standards format until December 2004, when it switched to oldies music (Westwood One's "Oldies Channel" format). The format changed to sports/talk in August 2006, programmed exclusively with ESPN Radio as "ESPN 1510 WLKR".
WLKR's current classic hits format was adopted in late August 2010.
