WVLK-FM (101.5 MHz) is a radio station licensed to the community of Richmond, Kentucky, and serves the greater Lexington, Kentucky, area. The station is owned by Cumulus Media and licensed to Cumulus Licensing LLC.[2]

This station was previously a simulcast of sister station WVLK-AM 590 KHz in Lexington.

The station has been assigned these call letters by the Federal Communications Commission since May 23, 2007.[1] Previously, sister country station WLXX held that callsign.

On October 31, 2014, at 6AM, WVLK-FM dropped its news/talk format and began stunting by playing only music by Garth Brooks as "Garth 101.5". At 5PM, 101.5 flipped to country, joining the Nash Icon network as 101.5 Nash Icon.
