WNWN (1560 AM) is a radio station licensed to Portage, Michigan broadcasting an urban adult contemporary format, provided by ABC Radio Networks (The Touch, or "Today's R&B and Old School"). The station serves the greater Kalamazoo, Michigan area.
WNWN is also heard in Portage/Kalamazoo on translator 95.5 W238AL. The translator was formerly used to relay country sister station WNWN-FM based in Battle Creek, but when another sister station, 96.5 WFAT, was switched to country music as WYZO, W238AL changed its programming source from WNWN-FM to WNWN-AM. W238AL is now the third FM translator in Michigan to relay an AM station, after stations in Big Rapids and Charlevoix/Petoskey. The translator on 95.5 allows "The Touch" programming to continue after WNWN-AM signs off for the night.
WNWN-AM has previously been a Top 40 station as WTPS in the 1960s, a country station as WBUK in the 1970s and 1980s (except for a brief period as an oldies station in 1981-1982), and a beautiful music station as WHEZ.
Note: WBUK-AM 1560 was shut down in 1984 after the station owner disappeared and the I.R.S. shut down the radio station. I worked at the station for about 6 months when it was in limbo after the owner disappeared and before it was shut down.
