Student-Run Radio
In short, this is what we do. Students run this place, not the adults.  Read all about by clicking on Management.

Where Are You?
We operate out of studios at Lyons Township High School's campuses in La Grange and Western Springs, Illinois and provide music, sports, news and more for the nearly 150,000 people WLTL reaches at 88.1 FM and for the world when you listen online.

Variety Rock
It's what we play on 88.1 FM all day long alongside sports, news, and specialty programming. Our DJs are students, our sports announcers are students, our producers are students, and even our 18 managers are students. Each semester, we provide over 100 students the unique, hands-on opportunity to learn about and be part of the media industry. 

This means that you’ll never hear an ad on our station! WLTL is not-for-profit and holds only one fundraiser each year that directly benefits the students.

How Do I Listen?
Glad you asked! You can find us at 88.1FM in the La Grange area (see our coverage map here), or stream us on the free Audacy app, or with the player on You can also ask your smart speaker to Play WLTL Radio. 

We do those too! Be sure to find all of our off-air student productions wherever you get your podcasts.
