WTLC(AM) began operation as in the early 80's as WIFE-AM. This station was a replacement with the same frequency and call letters as the WIFE-AM that was closed by the FCC shortly before. The original WIFE began life as WISH radio (the same WISH radio that started a WISH-TVTV station with the same calls on Channel 8 in Indianapolis). The latest incarnation went through many call changes between 1984 and January 2001. (WIFE, WMLF, WIFE-AM, WTUX, WTLC)

In January 2001, the station was purchased from Emmis Communications by Radio One. The call letters remained the same after the purchase, even if the format did not.
