WTRX (1330 AM, "Sports XTRA 1330") is an American radio station broadcasting a sports radio format in Flint, Michigan.

The station first began broadcasting in 1947 under the WBBC call sign and was a popular Top 40 station in the 1960s and early 1970s, going by the name "Trix." Around 1975, WTRX migrated from Top 40 to adult contemporary and continued with that format until 1989, when it became an affiliate of Satellite Music Network's Z-Rock format as WDLZ. After a period of silence after WDLZ went off the air in 1990, WTRX came back on the air with its current format and its legendary call sign restored.

WTRX is an affiliate of ESPN Radio [1]

WTRX is the Flint affiliate for The Detroit Tigers, The Detroit Lions, The Detroit Red Wings, The Detroit Pistons, and The Michigan Wolverines.
