WLXV (96.7 FM, "Mix 96") is a radio station licensed to Cadillac, Michigan broadcasting an Adult Top 40 leaning-hot adult contemporary format.

The station, which began broadcasting on July 7, 1974, has previously programmed easy listening and adult contemporary music as WITW, beautiful music as WEZV, and CHR as WWLZ ("Lakes FM"). WWLZ was changed in 1994 to a simulcast of WLXT 96.3 FM in Petoskey, which continued until MacDonald-Garber Broadcasting, believing the Cadillac area needed its own music station (as opposed to simulcasts of stations from Traverse City or elsewhere), began the current "Mix" format.

Mix 96 is programmed locally by Chris Nicholas, Program Director and Morning Show Host and features local Northern Michigan talent. Weekend programming includes the Hot AC version American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest Sundays 8am till 12pm; The Hollywood5 with Kidd Kraddick Saturday Mornings from 6am - 10am; and The Beacon with Austin Harris on Sunday mornings.

WLXV also shares the same location and houses studios for its sister stations The All New 93.7 FM The Ticket which includes the nationally known show Free Beer and Hot Wings from 5am till 9am Monday thru Friday and 5am till 10am on Saturday. The rest of the format on WKAD is sports talk. WLXV's other sister station is WATT-AM which is a heritage station in the market and has been for news talk for years.
