Station History

1370am signed on November 5, 1950.


Studios located at 734 Washington Street, Gary, IN.


After the sale to Marion Williams failed, the station went silent on May 6, 1999. Williams was operating the station under a time-brokerage agreement from 1997 - 1999 and decided not to buy the station since its debt load made the purchase price too high. Studios formerly located at 2019 Broadway, Gary, IN 46407-2605.
