WXCM broadcasts a mainstream rock music format to the greater Owensboro, Kentucky, area.[2] On January 4, 2010, the station began broadcasting the syndicated morning show "The Free Beer and Hot Wings Show" distributed by Compass Media Networks, but that show has since been discontinued due to low ratings.

The station was assigned the "WXCM" call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on June 9, 1997.[1]
