WLMS (88.3 FM) was a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Christian format until October 2008, licensed to Lecanto, Florida, United States. The station was owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Petersburg from 1992 to 2008, simulcasting programs from WBVM in Tampa. In October 2008, the license for WLMS was sold to Central Florida Educational Foundation and WLMS ceased broadcasting to enable a power increase by WPOZ, also owned by Central Florida Educational Foundation. Following WLMS's closure, a new radio station in Cross City, WWLC 88.5 FM, would be established as its replacement.
