WMVX (1570 AM; "Viva 1570") is a radio station licensed to Beverly, Massachusetts, USA. The station is currently owned by Costa-Eagle Radio Ventures Limited Partnership, a partnership between Pat Costa and his chief investor, The Eagle-Tribune.[2] WMVX offers a Spanish-language contemporary music format.

Previously the station was known by the call letters WMLO, WBVD, and WNSH. Its studios were previously located in Danvers, in Salem (at Pickering Wharf), and on the second floor of a hardware warehouse in Hamilton. In 2011, Willow Farm, Inc. sold WNSH for $400,000 to Costa-Eagle Broadcasting. In March 2011, Costa-Eagle changed the station to "Viva 1570". The format changed from tropical music, simulcasting Costa-Eagle sister station WNNW, to Spanish Adult Contemporary. On November 26, 2012, the call letters were changed to WMVX.[3]

In January, 2013 WMVX was granted an FCC construction permit to increase day power to 50,000 watts.
