WIXY (100.3 MHz FM) is a radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Champaign, Illinois, USA, the station serves the Champaign-Urbana area. The station is currently owned by Saga Communications of Illinois, LLC and features programing from CNN Radio and Motor Racing Network.[2]

eXtra program format

The station has an HD radio subcarrier,[3] and also has an analog broadcast translator, W221CK, on 92.1 at Champaign. During late 2009, these ran a new "WIXY Classic" country format. In early January 2010, that format swapped with WXTT "eXtra 99.1" in Savoy; 99.1 changed its callsign to WYXY and picked up WIXY Classic, and the 92.1 WIXY-HD2 subcarrier and 92.1 translator changed branding to "WXTT eXtra 92.1"[4]

History

The call letters WIXY have been used off and on in other U.S. cities, most notably in Cleveland, Ohio; that station later became WWMK. The current station received WIXY as its first callsign on 13 December 1991.[5]
