Lakes FM (89.3 FM) is a high school radio station broadcasting a Top 40 format. Licensed to the West Bloomfield School District, Michigan, it first began broadcasting in 1974.

In the fall of 2014, WBLD operations were moved from West Bloomfield High School to the Green Media Center on the Sheiko Elementary School site. In December 2014, WBLD was rebranded as "Lakes FM". Lakes FM now plays Top 40 Hits with a mix of older songs. This launched the "Old School, New School, From Your School" Slogan. In April, the FCC granted WBLD more power and to relocate the antenna from West Bloomfield High School to West Bloomfield Fire Tower #1, which is just north on Orchard Lake Road. In the Fall, Lakes FM broadcasts all WBHS varsity football and most basketball games.

Programming is provided by West Bloomfield High School students and professional staff at Civic Center TV
