XPN2/XPoNential Radio is an Adult Album Alternative radio station carried on the HD2 radio channels of WXPN FM in Philadelphia and WXPH in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

History[edit]

From 2006 until 2010, the HD2 channel of WXPN carried the brand of "Y-Rock on XPN" which featured on-air personalities originally from Philadelphia radio station WPLY 100.3 FM, branded as "Y100". WPLY owner Radio One changed the station's format in 2005, ending the alternative rock format. Y-Rock on XPN was the latest incarnation of the Y100 brand until June 2010[1] that originally aired on 100.3 FM, which was the city's alternative rock station from the 1990s until 2005.

In 2010, WXPN-HD2 changed branding from "Y-Rock on XPN" to "XPN2/XPoNential
