WLLX (97.5 FM) is a Class C2 FM radio station serving the southern Tennessee area. The station was one of the first in the nation to own and operate a live, color weather radar system and distribute the images to its listeners via a subcarrier on the primary FM signal.

The station has had a successful history of serving the community in times of breaking news and severe weather conditions. WLLX-FM was granted a construction permit by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2005 to upgrade its power from 25 kW to 50 kW. The project was completed and the station signed on the air in mid-January 2006 serving a population total near 3.5 million in the area south of Nashville, Tennessee to just north of Birmingham, Alabama.

The station is based in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.

On August 5, 2008 WLLX-FM split its simulcast with WWLX-AM. The AM station re-launched with a new branding, "Classic Hits WLX" and a network of FM translators that cover Southern Middle Tennessee. In July 2014 Classic Hits WLX was re-launched as "105.3 The X" with a revised Classic Rock music format in addition to local sports coverage.

Both stations are owned and operated by Prospect Communications.

Translators[edit]

WLLX-FM's programming is also carried on four broadcast translator stations to extend or improve the coverage area of the station.
