WXNX is a commercial radio station licensed to Sanibel, Florida, broadcasting to the Naples / Fort Myers area on 93.7 FM. WXNX airs an active rock music format branded as "93X".

History & ownership[edit]

The station was originally a local signal licensed to Naples, and located at 93.5 on the FM band. The station featured at one time a Dance Radio format with callsign WPRW, and the moniker "Power 93.5", reminiscent of WPBT "Power 89.5", a simulcast of now-defunct 91.5, "The Spark".

In 2000, WTLT's frequency changed from 93.5 to 93.7 FM, which allowed an increase in its coverage area. In 2010, WTLT moved its transmitter closer to Fort Myers, in order to more effectively cover Lee County, and the northern part of the market.

On June 19, 2013, after Beasley Broadcasting shifted the part of the active rock format from WJBX to portions of the day on Hot Talk WRXK to make room for the move of ESPN Radio to 99.3 FM, WTLT dropped its "93.7 Lite" adult contemporary format and assumed the "X" moniker and active rock format. On June 26, 2013, WTLT changed their call letters to WXNX.

WXNX is owned by Sun Broadcasting, Inc. along with WARO, WFSX-FM, and WFWN/WNOG. WXNX also shares facilities with WINK-FM, WJUA, and WTLQ on Palm Beach Boulevard in Fort Myers.

Programming[edit]

WXNX has five DJ's: Jeff Zito, Anthony "Roach", Theo, Sydney, and Jack Mckissock on the weekends.
