WSTC (1400 AM) is a radio station licensed to Stamford, Connecticut[2] and serving the Stamford-Norwalk area with brokered Christian radio programming. WSTC is owned by Sacred Heart University, after being sold by Cox Radio, Inc. in 2011 and initially operated by Sacred Heart via a local marketing agreement; prior to 2011, WSTC and WNLK simulcast a commercial news/talk format.[3] On January 25, 2016 WSTC dropped its public radio simulcast with WSHU (1260 AM) and went silent, and then returned to the air on June 1, 2016 with an adult standards/talk format.

On July 10, 2017 WSTC switched to a simulcast of NPR news/talk-formatted WSHU 1260 AM Westport.[4] On August 7, 2017 WSTC dropped its public radio simulcast with WSHU (1260 AM) and began simulcasting WNLK again.
