WLYE-FM (94.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Classic Country format. Licensed to Glasgow, Kentucky, USA, the station serves the Bowling Green area. The station is currently owned by Forever Communications, Inc. and features programming from ABC Radio.
The station was assigned the call letters WGBV on January 4, 1995, when the FCC first granted the construction permit.  The station signed on in 1997 as a full-time satellite station of Auburn-licensed but Bowling Green-based WBVR-FM. In January 2002, Forever Broadcasting Inc. (Carol Logan, president) reached an agreement to purchase this station (then known as WGBV-FM) from Royse Radio Inc. (Henry Royse II, owner) for a reported sale price of $416,412. On September 3, 2003, call letters were changed to the current WLYE.
After becoming a separate station in 2003, the station has been broadcasting a Classic Country format, billing itself as Real Country Willie 94.1. The station also airs the "The Real Trader" program weekday mornings at around 8:30 am CT. The Real Trader is a weekday program devoted to people selling stuff in the method of classified ads.
WLYE was also the official broadcaster of Edmonson County High School football and boys' and girls' basketball games from the 2003-2004 season until 2014. The rights to those games became Internet-exclusive upon the launch of EdmonsonVoice.com in 2014.
In February 2017, WLYE's programming began to be simulcast over WBGN-AM 1340 and its associated translator W300DA, both of Bowling Green.
