WTTS-92.3 FM is the home of “World Class Rock” here in Indianapolis. At anytime of the day or night, your ears will be treated to a mixture of classic rock, reggae, blues and alternative rock that WTTS broadcasts from its station in downtown Indianapolis. They have a catolog of music that ranges from the mid-60’s to the latest tracks recorded by today’s best musicians.
This is still an independently owned radio station, a fact they take great pride in. Sarkes Tarzian Inc has owned the radio station since the very first day WTTS took to the air in 1960. The company who is named after its founder, an Armenian immigrant who had a knack for radio engineering, first presented the Circle City with a Big Band format that lasted for over a decade. When they decided that Big Band was dead the station opted for country music instead. While 92.3 FM enjoyed moderate success with their country music programming, they still did not feel as though they had found their true sound.
It wasn’t until 1992 when WTTS-92.3 FM first started playing “World Class Rock” that they found their permanent place in the Indianapolis media. The station prides itself on not only delivering the best from the big names in music, but also giving a platform to the newest bands and musicians that are up and coming on the music scene in Indianapolis. In the spirit of their independent ownership WTTS has always been known for the close connection they share with their fans and listeners. In a display of just how grateful 92.3 FM is of their loyal fans they gave one his own show.
In 2004, Phil Stoerk was given his own monthly on-air show, aptly named “Phil the Listener Show.” Another on-air personality that has roots deeply planted in Indy is Paul Mendenhall; he hosts “The WTTS Morning Show” every weekday from 5:30am to 9:00am. Paul is a graduate of Carmel High School, and, before joining the 92.3 FM team, he was a teacher at Ben Davis High School where he was the station manager of WBDG-90.9 FM.
Since their format change in the early 90’s, WTTS-92.3 FM has hosted or shown up to party at countless concerts and music events in Indianapolis. One of the most memorable concerts they hosted took place on July 15, 2007. The show was in honor of the station’s fifteen years of presenting in their current format. The “WTTS 15th Birthday Bash starring Bob Dylan” took place at White River State Park. Needless to say the show was sold out and the music was awesome. It is in this spirit that WTTS promises that they will keep rocking if you keep listening.
