WFXN-FM (102.3 FM) — branded 102.3 The Fox — is a commercial classic rock radio station licensed to Galion, Ohio. Owned by Clear Channel Communications, WFXN-FM is the local affiliate for The Bob & Tom Show and The House of Hair with Dee Snider. The WFXN-FM studios are located in Mansfield, while the station transmitter resides in Galion. Besides a standard analog transmission, the station is available online via iHeartRadio.

WFXN-FM primarily serves the Mid-Ohio counties of Richland, Crawford, and Morrow, but also extends its signal by using a single full-power repeater. Licensed to Loudonville, Ohio, repeater WXXF (107.7 FM) provides additional coverage to the Mid-Ohio counties of Holmes, Ashland, and Wayne.

History

WFXN-FM began as WQLX on November 8, 1974.[1] At first, WQLX simulcast WGLX/Galion (1570 AM), a station which fell silent in 1993. Later, WQLX was paired with Z Rock station WYXZ/Crestline. In 1996, Ohio Radio Group acquired WQLX; the following year, Ohio Radio Group changed the station's callsign to WGLN. In 2001, Clear Channel purchased Ohio Radio Group. Over the next two years, the station callsign changed three times: in 2002 to WFXN; in 2003 to WXFN-FM; and again in 2003, to WFXN-FM.

Current programming

In addition to its classic rock format, WFXN-FM airs the The Bob & Tom Show weekday mornings, and The House of Hair with Dee Snider on Saturday nights.[2][3]
