The station that first took to the air on frequency 97.1 FM has not always been “Hank FM,” in fact it hasn’t always been WLHK. What started as WSVL-FM on November 6, 1964, was located in Shelbyville, Indiana. In 1979 Emmis Communications purchased the station and changed both its call letters and station format again. On July 4, 1981 WENS was unveiled as a light rock music station and stayed that way for nearly 25 years.
In March of 2005 WLHK-97.1 FM became the “Hank FM” we have all come to know and love. It is not just for the music they play that we have fallen for this station, they are the home of the biggest ticket in all of Indianapolis sports. Since 2007, 97.1 FM has been the radio home of the Indianapolis Colts. If you can’t see the boys in blue take the field in person at Locus Oil Stadium, and you don’t want to sit in a crowded Indianapolis bar, just tune in and turn it up.
