WLTI is a talk radio station in Syracuse, New York branded as 105.9 The Big Talker. It broadcasts on FM frequency 105.9 MHz and is under ownership of Citadel Broadcasting.

The WLTI callsign was once used on a radio station in Detroit, Michigan from 1985-1996 (now WDRQ) and coincidentally had an adult contemporary format. Years later, the stations became co-owned when Citadel purchased ABC Radio in 2007.

For most of the 2000s, WLTI was branded as "Lite 105.9" or "Lite Rock 105.9" and had an adult contemporary music format that varied between "soft AC" (during the Lite years) and "hot AC" (during the later "Lite Rock" period). Programming during this period included Dave Allen (mornings during the "Lite" period), Robin Marshall (under the alias "Jayne," middays), Phil Spevak (under the alias "Brian Phillips," afternoons), Bob and Sheri (mornings during the "Lite Rock" time period) and Delilah (evenings). Delilah is now on WYYY (WYYY owner Clear Channel also syndicates Delilah).

WLTI announced a switch to news/talk, branded as "105.9 The Big Talker", effective in early March 2010. Programming will include a local afternoon program hosted by Gary Nolan, as well as The Bob & Tom Show, The Stephanie Miller Show, Michael Smerconish, The Dave Ramsey Show, The Mark Levin Show[1],and Red Eye Radio with Doug McIntyre. One time slot, the late night time slot, remains unfilled, and features a repeat of Stephanie Miller. It has been speculated that Citadel's John Batchelor or perhaps The Joe Scarborough Show might be used in this time slot. Weekends on WLTI are primarily filled with reruns of weekday programming, with the exception of the "Irish Power Hour," a radio series dedicated to Celtic rock.
