WFXO (98.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Classic Hits format.[2] Licensed to Stewartville, Alabama, USA, it serves East Central Alabama. The station is owned and operated by Marble City Media LLC.

Originally licensed in Sylacauga, WFXO-FM first signed on as WMLS-FM in Dec. 1959 and moved to Ashland in 2004. On July 19, 2016, the Federal Communications Commission approved Marble City Media LLC’s purchase of WFXO-FM from Williams Communications Inc., and the transfer was completed on Aug. 1, 2016. On Oct. 24, 2016, the FCC approved the station’s relocation back to the greater Sylacauga area with a license in Stewartville. The station ceased operation in Ashland on Nov. 24, 2016, and began broadcasting from the Sylacauga area on Dec. 4.

The station's format initially flipped to Contemporary Hit Radio, then moved to classic hits on January 1, 2017.

Marble City Media LLC also owns and operates stations primarily serving Sylacauga-Childersburg-Talladega and Alexander City-Dadeville-Lake Martin-Wetumpka-Montgomery and has a construction permit to build a new FM station in Waverly, Ala., to serve the Auburn-Opelika area.
