History

WNDE began operation as WFBM in 1924 as the fifth radio station licensed in Indianapolis (after WLK [1922-1923], WOH [1922-1923], WBBI [1924], and WBBZ [1924-1925]). It was started by the Merchants Heating & Light Co., later Indianapolis Power & Light.


When WFBM went on the air, it was assigned a frequency of 1130 kilocycles (the kilohertz did not come into use for another quarter century). In 1927, it moved to 1330 kc, then to 1090 kc in 1928, and to 1230 kc in 1929. It arrived at its current frequency after the great frequency shift of 1941, when all stations in the United States at 1230 kc were moved to 1260 kc.


In 1949, WFBM became WFBM-AM when WFBM-TV (now WRTV 6) went on the air in time to broadcast the 1949 Indianapolis 500 (May 30, 1949). The WFBM “family” grew on November 26, 1959, when WFBM-FM went on the air at 94.7 mHz. WRTV , RTV6, is the ABC television affiliate in Indianapolis, Indiana. ...


In 1957, the three WFBM stations were sold to Time-Life, Inc. In 1972, WFBM-TV became WRTV. In November 1973, WFBM-AM became WNDE, followed by WFBM-FM becoming WFBQ Q95 in the Spring of 1974. WRTV , RTV6, is the ABC television affiliate in Indianapolis, Indiana. ... WFBQ, Q95 is an FM radio station owned by Clear Channel Communications in Indianapolis, Indiana. ...


WNDE is the oldest operating radio station in Indianapolis, and third oldest in the state of Indiana.
