Known as WACT for 50 years from September 1958 to September 2008, the station was assigned the call letters WENN by the Federal Communications Commission on September 18, 2008. The station aired a sports radio format as "1420 The Tusk".
The WACT callsign was restored on February 25, 2009. This change accompanied a change to a news/talk format and rebranding as "News Radio 1420".
