WKLX (100.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Hits format. The station is licensed to Brownsville, Kentucky, USA, and it serves the Bowling Green media market. The station is currently owned by Charles M. Anderson and is a part of the Commonwealth Broadcasting group of radio stations.[2]

History[edit]

The station signed on the air as WAUE on June 1, 1997. It switched to it current WKLX callsign on July 10, 1998, which is about 11 months and 9 days after its inception.[3] The Adult hits format has been part of the station since the call sign change of July 1998, when it adopted the branding "100.7 KLX." it was branded as "Star 100.7" during the mid-2000s. The current 100.7 Sam FM moniker was adopted in 2006.

Its transmitter is located along Kentucky Route 1749 near the Wingfield community of southwestern Edmonson County. It currently shares tower space with low-powered television station WCZU-LD, since Spring 2014.[4]

Broadcast format[edit]

WKLX actually utilizes a non-structured music playlist as an Adult Hits station, a practice similar to that of Murfreesboro, Tennessee-licensed WCJK, 96.3 Jack FM in Nashville. The station is the flagship station of WKU Hilltoppers basketball broadcasts from the Hilltopper IMG Sports Network.

In addition to the main station, WKLX is relayed by an additional translator to widen its broadcast area.[5]
