WAIL (99.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic rock format. Licensed to Key West, Florida, USA, the station serves the Florida Keys area. The station is currently owned by Robert Holladay, through licensee Florida Keys Media, LLC.[1]


On January 25, 2008, it was announced that WAIL-FM was one of several Clear Channel radio stations to be sold, in order to remain under the ownership caps following the sale of Clear Channel to private investors. Until it was sold, WAIL and other stations to be sold were placed into the Aloha Stations Trust. ([1], [2])

WAIL used to be known as "99.5 The Whale." WAIL simulcasted with WFKZ and the two stations were formally known as "99.5/103.1 Sun FM."

The trust sold WAIL and three sister stations to Robert Holladay's Florida Keys Media, LLC for $650,000; the transaction was consummated February 28, 2014.

As of July 2015 WAIL resumed simulcasting WFKZ 103.1 Plantation Key, Florida.
