WTKX-FM (101.5 FM, "TK101") is an active rock music formatted radio station licensed to serve Pensacola, Florida. The broadcast area reaches far into northwest Florida, nearly all of southwest Alabama and as far as Gulfport, Mississippi.
In November 2014 the station studio's and broadcast center was moved to in Mobile, Alabama to be consolidated with other Iheartmedia facilities. This is due to iHeartMedia, Inc. shutting down or selling radio stations not located within the top-100 markets. The station's transmitter is near Robertsdale, Alabama.
WTKX features syndicated personalities "Lex & Terry" in morning drive and Iheartmedia's "Premium Content" or syndicated personalities in all other day-parts. Including PM Drive on-air personality "Dump Truck" who broadcast's out of the Tampa Bay area market.
The station broadcasts in HD Radio and carries Nick Radio on HD-2 sub-channel.
