Nashville’s Independent Radio, an advocate of local music and businesses for over 23 years!

Originally known as WIZO-FM, WRLT-FM has been broadcasting to Middle Tennessee on100.1 MHz since November 16, 1961. Licensed to Franklin, Tenn., WIZO-FM was the FM counterpart of WIZO (AM) 1380. After a number of ownership,format and name changes, it became Rebel 100 in 1987 as WWRB-FM and was one of the country`s first alternative rock stations.

In 2006, WRLT launched the syndicated talk radio show, Music Business Radio, hosted by music marketing expert, consultant, and author David Hooper, and features interviews with various industry professionals giving the listener their insight and expertise into the business.

WRLT is also home to community outreach and special events through Team Lightning (rebranded from Team Green Adventures in late 2017), an outdoor adventure group with a mission to increase awareness about the environment, health, and community through adventure, and Live on the Green Music Festival, a free music festival on the plaza at Metro Nashville Courthouse from August through September, highlighting local artists and businesses.
