eXtra program format
The station has an HD radio subcarrier, and also has an analog broadcast translator, W221CK, on 92.1 at Champaign. During late 2009, these ran a new "WIXY Classic" country format. In early January 2010, that format swapped with WXTT "eXtra 99.1" in Savoy; 99.1 changed its call sign to WYXY and picked up WIXY Classic, and the 92.1 WIXY-HD2 subcarrier and 92.1 translator changed branding to "WXTT eXtra 92.1"
The call letters WIXY have been used off and on in other U.S. cities, most notably in Cleveland, Ohio; that station later became WCCR. The current station was assigned the WIXY callsign by the FCC on 13 December 1991. WIXY began broadcasting on June 1, 1992.
