WXCT has long been the sister station to WDEF-FM and was the sister station to WDEF-TV, before being spun off from the CBS affiliate in the 1990s. It signed on as WDEF on December 31, 1940 at 1400 on the AM dial, and was moved to 1370 in the late 1940s.
On October 30, 2016, WDEF changed their call letters to WXCT.
