WNTX is a News/Talk/Sports formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Fredericksburg, Virginia, serving metro Fredericksburg. WNTX is owned and operated by Alpha Media LLC, through licensee Alpha Media Licensee LLC.
It was known as WFLS and simulcast with WFLS-FM until 1996, when the calls were changed to WYSK and it started simulcasting WYSK-FM.
On January 23, 2015, Alpha Media "entered into a definitive agreement" to purchase WNTX and sister stations WFLS-FM, WVBX, and WWUZ from Free Lance-Star License, Inc. for an unknown sum. The purchase was consummated on May 1, 2015, at a price of $8.1 million.
In February 2010, WYSK began simulcasting on translator W243BS at 96.5 FM. On April 16, 2013, W243BS 96.5 dropped its simulcast of sister station WNTX for a simulcast of WFLS-HD2 carrying a Freeform format. The "FredFM" format was dropped in early March 2014, when W243BS resumed simulcasting sister station WNTX.
