WMNI (920 AM) is a radio station in Columbus, Ohio that went on the air April 26, 1958 and carries a standards music format. WMNI is locally-owned by Columbus based North American Broadcasting Company, Inc.. It broadcasts with one kilowatt of power during the day, but reduces to 500 watts at night. The Indy 500, the Brickyard 400, Notre Dame football, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Columbus Clippers are all carried on the station. The studios are located on Dublin Road in Marble Cliff while the transmitter is in Grove City.
WMNI recently went from carrying chiefly a satellite-delivered music format ("Adult Standards" from Westwood One) to mostly local programming. As of August 2007, WMNI has reportedly shifted back to the Westwood One (now Dial Global) "Adult Standards" format.
Previously, WMNI was Columbus's predominant country music station through the 1970s and 1980s.
On Thursday July 18, 2013, the AM / FM simulcast ended, with WMNI-AM returning to the Adult Standards format.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings, WMNI hosts radio shows such as Plant Talk with Fred Hower and At Home With Gary Sullivan (specialty programs list)
