WLKL, 89.9 FM, is located in the Northwest Building on the campus of Lake Land College. The station is staffed by students enrolled in Radio/TV classes at Lake Land College. WLKL’s primary format is alternative rock, with a touch of 70’s hits from 7:00 – 8:00 am and throwbacks from the 80’s from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. Add 4 hours of techno on Saturday nights beginning at 11:00 p.m. and you have WLKL, The Max Alternative.
This 1300 watt station reaches a 25 – 30 mile radius of the Lake Land College campus, providing listeners with up to date news, weather forecasts, Lake Land events, and sports scores. Thanks for listening from the students and staff at WLKL 89.9 FM, the Max Alternative!
