Lexington Community Radio

Lexington Community Radio is the voice of the people. Over 160 volunteers create thousands of hours of original content each year in English and in Spanish. We serve Lexington's urban neighborhoods--especially communities of color, Latinx communities, and LGBT communities whose experiences are not equitably represented in most local media. LCR also plays a critical public safety role by providing real-time information during severe weather, disasters, and other local emergencies.

Lexington Community Radio is people-powered radio. Founded in 2015, LCR operates two low-power FM community radio stations in Fayette County: WLXU 93.9 FM and El Pulso WLXL 95.7 FM (Lexington's only Spanish-language FM radio station). Low power FM is a special broadcast designation established by Congress and the FCC in 2000. Whether educating immigrant communities on the intricacies of the US Postal service, telling neighbors' stories about the devastation of the opioid epidemic, or hosting a bi-lingual discussion on Lexington's burgeoning art scene, Lexington Community Radio aims to foster diversity on public airwaves. We impact the public discourse in our town by presenting a range of voices and points-of-view not found in national and regional corporate media.

Lexington Community Radio is always on the lookout for talented on-air personalities with creative ideas to showcase news, music, culture, and opinion from underrepresented perspectives. We also have volunteer opportunities for underwriting sales, copywriters, production assistants, and podcast creators.
