WRXD (96.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Contemporary format. Licensed to Fajardo, Puerto Rico, it serves the Puerto Rico area. The station is currently owned by WRXD Licensing, Inc.

From the late 1970s until the late 1990s it was known as Y-96 FM with its original call signs WDOY-FM. Then in the late 1990s it was branded as Cima 96.5 FM, later Romance 96.5 FM (WCMA-FM) and its format was an 1980s and 1990s pop music station until February 2008. On February 25, 2008, at 5:30 am AST it became the first FM Spanish-speaking station in United States and Latin America to be a news station and political analysis on a 24/7 schedule. It was branded as Red 96.

It was announced on January 15, 2010, that it would go off the air and turned into a music station, playing merengue and bachata. The new name is Ritmo 96.5 FM.

On October 14, 2014, Estereotempo will change frequencies from 99.9 to 96.5 FM, with better coverage in the metropolitan area.
