WRXK-FM is a commercial radio station with studios located in Estero, Florida and licensed to Bonita Springs, Florida, broadcasting to the Fort Myers-Naples-Marco Island, Florida area on 96.1 MHz FM. WRXK-FM airs a rock format branded as "96 K-Rock" under Program Director Chris DeLozier. 96 K-Rock began in 1986 airing a Mainstream Rock format mixing New, Current and Alternative/Modern rock along with Classic Rock and is now known for its high powered big shows and hard rock. It is now Southwest Florida's home for the BRN (Bubba Radio Network) airing the Bubba The Love Sponge Show syndicated from Tampa, Florida and 20 year market vets Stan and Haney in the afternoon.
96 K-Rock also airs Miami Dolphins football. Dolphins previously aired on co-owned 770 ESPN until they started airing NASCAR races on Sundays. 96 K-Rock also airs The House of Hair hosted by Dee Snider lead singer of the 80's rock band Twisted Sister Saturday nights starting at 10 pm.
On February 13, 2012 WRXK-FM changed their format to hot talk, branded as "96 K-Rock, Talk That Rocks," but returned to rock on June 17, 2013 in preparation for sister station 99X's flip to ESPN programming on June 20.
