WXNT 1430 AM Radio Station

WXNT-1430 AM has a reputation of being the best news talk radio station in all of the Indianapolis media. This was not a title they easily earned. WXNT has become the radio news leader by delivering the best in local and national news to their listeners in Indianapolis. While talking politics is the station’s forte, they are a leading authority on everything Indy.

The station has a long history that started back in 1927 when the 1430 AM frequency broadcast under the call sign WKBF. In the late 40′s they switched both their call sign and format; at that time they were known as WIRE and offered their listeners Country music. This country format enjoyed an extended run that lasted up until the mid 80′s when once again both the call letters and programming changed. This time they provided big band music under the WCKN station name. Finally on October 22, 2001 the station became the WXNT-1430 AM news talk and information station that is so highly praised today.

WXNT draws all of their superior information from not one, not two, but three of the largest media outlets in the country: Fox News Radio, Premiere Radio News and Westwood One. Knowing that WXNT casts such an encompassing net to gather information, it is no wonder 1430 AM covers all aspects of life in Indy.

For the latest scores of all your favorite Indianapolis sports franchises like the Indiana Pacers and the Indianapolis Colts look no further than WXNT. Each year they will broadcast a remote feed from the most famous one day sporting event in the world, the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race (Indy 500). This station even finds time to broadcast the Butler University Men’s Basketball games live.

WXNT-1430 AM offers a community calendar that helps you keep track of all the events in and around Indianapolis like the 500 festival and the Circle of Lights festival held annually at Monument Circle. 1430 AM is the sister station to Z 99.5 FM so they keep you up to date on all the concerts that will rock the major venues in downtown Indianapolis like Lucas Oil Stadium, Conseco Fieldhouse, the Murat Theatre or the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville.
