WXNT (1430 kHz) is a commercial AM radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana. The station is owned by Cumulus Media, and carries an all-sports radio format, as an affiliate of the CBS Sports Radio Network.[2][3] WXNT airs a local Indianapolis-centered sports talk show in the afternoon with Kent Sterling. The remainder of the schedule is CBS Sports Radio shows and live sporting events.

WXNT studios and offices are located on N. Meridian Street, along with sister stations 99.5 WZPL and 107.9 WNTR. The transmitter and antenna are located off Knollton Road at West 46th Street, on the northwest side of Indianapolis.[4] WXNT operates at 5000 watts around the clock, using a non-directional antenna by day. But at night a directional antenna is required to protect other stations on AM 1430 from interference.[5]
