WAYK (105.9 FM) is an American contemporary Christian music station in the Louisville, Kentucky, metropolitan area. It is a WAY-FM Network owned-and-operated station.

105.9 FM was initially a construction permit with the call letters WVSL in 1991. On September 1, 1993, it officially signed on with an active rock format as "QMF Too," in reference to then-sister station WQMF (105.9 changed to the WQNF call letters).[1] In July 1995, the station shifted to modern rock, rebranded as "Q105.9", and changed call letters to WXNU.[2] In 1997, it flipped to Modern AC as "Hits 105.9." This was short lived; later that year, WRVI and its Rock AC format moved from 94.7 FM to 105.9. The format would later shift to all-80s hits.

Prior to 2008, the station was "105.9 The River" owned by Salem Communications.

On May 2, 2011, the then-WSYI rebranded as "Shine 105.9". The station changed its call sign to the current WAYK on December 19, 2013.
