WILX-TV, channel 10, is the NBC-affiliated television station for Lansing, Michigan, licensed to Onondaga. Its transmitter is located near that town. Owned by Gray Television, the station has studios on American Road in Lansing.
WILX was on the air for 70 percent of the broadcast day including all of prime time. However, both stations shared the same tower and transmitter in Onondaga. This arrangement continued until WKAR resumed broadcasting on channel 23 in 1972. WILX was later sold to Figgie Communications. The station went through several more ownership changes (Adams Television, Brissette Broadcasting, Forward Communications and Benedek Broadcasting) before it was acquired by current owner Gray Television. Since the late-1980s WILX has been the dominant television station in Lansing. Unlike most two-station markets, WILX did not have a secondary affiliation with ABC.
This was because WJRT-TV in Flint decently covered most of Lansing. The city would not have an ABC affiliate of its own until WLAJ signed on in 1990. For many years, the station's main studios were located at 1510 Springport Road in Jackson while its newsroom was located in downtown Lansing. In the early-1990s, under the ownership of Brissette Broadcasting, the station's operations were consolidated into a studio complex in Lansing located at 500 American Road.

WILX oparates its own weather radar. Known as "Live Sky Search 10,000", it is located at the station's studios. Although WILX does not air NBC Weather Plus, it does offer The AccuWeather Channel on its second digital subchannel. It is known on-air as "The Weather Source." On digital cable, the weather station can be seen on Comcast channel 249 and Millennium channel 454. There are local news updates provided on the station. Unlike most NBC affiliates, WILX does not broadcast local news during the week at Noon. Due to budget concerns the news staff has been cut over the last few years
