For most of the 2000s, WLTI was branded as "Lite 105.9" or "Lite Rock 105.9" and had an adult contemporary music format that varied between "soft AC" (during the Lite years) and "hot AC" (during the later "Lite Rock" period). Programming during this period included Dave Allen (mornings during the "Lite" period), Robin Marshall (under the alias "Jayne," middays), Phil Spevak (under the alias "Brian Phillips," afternoons), Bob and Sheri (mornings during the "Lite Rock" time period), Delilah (evenings), and the "Irish Power Hour," a brokered program dedicated to Celtic rock. Delilah is now on WYYY (WYYY owner Clear Channel also syndicates Delilah). The Irish Power Hour, originally staying on WXTL for about a year after changing to a talk format, moved to WAQX (a rock station) in February 2011; which canceled the show later that year.
WLTI made the switch to news/talk, branded as WXTL "105.9 The Big Talker", in early March 2010, following a brief stunt with TV theme songs as "TV 105.9".
On January 6, 2012, following yet another stunt of "TV 105.9", the station switched to classic rock as "The Rebel" with the Bob and Tom show continuing in mornings.
