WNTN was born in 1968 and has featured many formats since.
In the early days (1968 to 1975), before the popularity of FM radio, WNTN played progressive rock music. From 1975 to 1979, local news and information was highlighted along with middle-of-the-road popular music.
From 1979 to 1983, oldies music was featured. In 1984 WNTN became “Your Daytime Nightclub”, participating in the dance and disco era.
From the late 1980’s to present, WNTN has been a “Variety” station, concentrating on coverage of local news and issues and broadcasting to a diverse, multi-cultural audience in greater Boston. Some of WNTN’s most popular ethnic programs in recent years include Greek, Haitian, Irish, Italian and Indian.
