95.7 WAOR, online radio streaming is a America’s First Classic Rock Station. 95.7 WAOR signed on as WLRX on December 16, 1991 (the calls for the construction permit granted in 1990 had been WXJG, but the station was never on the air with those calls). WLRX broadcast ABC Radio/SMN’s StarStation adult contemporary format serving the Nappanee area under the name “Star 96,” then segued to a Hot AC direction with local DJs as “Magic 95.7” and broadened its focus to include South Bend and Elkhart. It was during this time the station also changed hands from Indiana Star Broadcasting to Service Communications of South Bend. Service was purchased by Talking Stick which is now a part of the Federated Communications of Elkhart umbrella. At Midnight on February 4, 2005 the station adopted an Urban Contemporary format and took the call letters WYPW, which it held until it adopted its current format and call letters in 2010.
