WXLW-950 AM is the home of sports talk radio in Indianapolis. The station is better known as XL 950 due to the size of the on-air host’s sports acumen. These guys eat, sleep and breathe Indianapolis sports.

switched to a sports talk format. 950 AM switched back and forth between ESPN and FOX Sports until January 7, 2008 when they found their permanent home with Sports News Radio; a twenty-four hours a day seven days a week sports programming company based out of California.
