WXKC (99.9 FM, "Classy 100") is a radio station in Erie, Pennsylvania. It plays adult contemporary music and is owned by Cumulus Media.


Beginnings as WLVU[edit]

The station first went on the air in 1949 as WWYN FM and later briefly as WWFM eight years after the debut of its AM sister station WWYN AM and FM, which later became WRIE.

For many years until the mid-1980s, this was Erie's heritage easy listening radio station. The station ran automated for almost its entire existence until its purchase by K & K Radio Broadcasting in April 1985 when it was changed to an AC oldies station "Easy Rock 999", which operated for several months on the automation system.

Following the purchase by K & K, and amid declines in the easy listening format, Don Kelly took Eazy Rock 999 live in the summer[when?] to Classy 100 WXKC adult contemporary, much like what it is today.[when?]
