Background
share close
RADIOLEX is Lexington’s Community Radio.

Our programming is created by more than 160 friends and neighbors—volunteers who produce thousands of hours of original, hyper-local content each year in English on WLXU 93.9 FM and in Spanish on WLXL95.7 FM.

RADIOLEX is a go-to information resource for thousands of listeners in Lexington’s underrepresented neighborhoods—especially our Black, Latinx, Asian, Immigrant & Refugee, and LGBTQ+ communities as well as others whose experiences and concerns are not represented in mainstream news media.

RADIOLEX also plays a critical public safety role by providing real-time, community-level information during severe weather, disasters, and other local emergencies.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and during the vaccine rollout, RADIOLEX has taken a leadership role. Our stations and website have been providing critical safety and public health information in over 20 languages to non-English speakers in our community. There are more than 185 languages spoken in Lexington. RADIOLEX’s team of volunteer interpreters have won recognition from the Governor’s office, the Kentucky Colonels, and the Kentucky World Language Association
