WXKC (99.9 FM, "Classy 100") is a radio station in Erie, Pennsylvania. It plays Adult Contemporary music and is owned by Cumulus Media.

History: Beginnings as WLVU[edit]

This station first went on the air in 1949 as WLVU, eight years after the debut of its AM sister station, WRIE.

For many years until the mid-1980s, this was Erie's heritage easy-listening radio station. The station ran automated for almost its entire existence until its purchase by K & K Radio Broadcasting in April 1985.

Following the purchase by K & K, the format was changed to adult contemporary, much like what it is today, and the call letters to WXKC.
