WLIX-LP (94.7 FM) is a low-power FM radio station broadcasting a soft adult contemporary format.[1] Licensed to Ridge, New York, the station is currently owned by Pine Barrens Broadcasting.[2]

History[edit]

The radio station began in 2005 as RadioX, a modern/alternative rock radio station. The Federal Communications Commission issued a construction permit for the station on February 27, 2004.[3] The station was assigned the WLIX-LP call sign on March 10, 2004,[4] and received its license to cover on September 30, 2005.[5] The radio station had approximately 60,000 listeners[citation needed] at its peak, but suffered financial difficulties. A programming agreement was established with a local ministry in April 2007. This converted WLIX-LP to a Christian Radio format.

This arrangement continued until Labor Day weekend of 2012. On August 31, 94.7 WLIX switched programming to adult standards utilizing "The Penthouse" format from Big Sticks Broadcasting and served as the flagship station for this format.

On November 1, 2012, the adult standards programming ceased, and WLIX switched to a classic soft adult contemporary format.
