WLXE is a radio station broadcasting on 1600 kHz in the mediumwave AM band. Its studios and transmitters are located in Rockville, Maryland, and it serves the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. WLXE broadcasts music programming in the Spanish language. Its transmitter and antenna array are located off Hungerford Drive (Maryland Route 355), near the northern border of Rockville city. WLXE is under ownership of Multicultural Broadcasting.

During the 1960s, the station carried the call letters WINX and broadcast a Top-40 format. It was located at 8 Baltimore Road off Church Street near the intersection of Veirs Mill Road and Rockville Pike. It was consistently the third-ranked Top 40 station in the ratings, following WPGC and WEAM. The station shifted to an oldies format in the 1990s (simulcast on FM 94.3 Warrenton), then followed by a short stint as top-40 again around 1998 in the FM dominated market. Sold to Mega then Multicultural, they converted to Spanish-language programming.
