1450 WASK has simulcasted WASK-FM since the mid-1990s. The simulcast began to be broken in early 2006 when the station began airing broadcasts of the NCAA Championships and IRL Racing. Outside of these broadcasts, 1450 resumed simulcasting the FM's oldies format. However, in August 2006, the station began running independent from WASK-FM full-time when it acquired rights to run ESPN Radio in the Lafayette market.
It began running local sports in 2008 with former Purdue Boilermaker Offensive Lineman Kelly Kitchel, former WLFI-TV Personality Clayton Duffy and former Journal and Courier writer Brendan Murphy as hosts.
WASK is the Lafayette market's ESPN Radio affiliate. ESPN 1450 also runs various sporting events, including the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, the NCAA Tournament, Purdue men's basketball postgame call-in show, Purdue football tailgate show, Purdue football postgame call-in show, college football, Monday Night Football, Bowl Championship Series, high school football, high school basketball, Super Bowl and NFL Playoffs, college football bowl games.
