Historic WFLNEdit

The call sign WFLN was originally assigned in 1949 to a Philadelphia FM radio station located at 95.7 MHz.[3] The station operated primarily a classical music format. In 1956, WFLN (900 kHz) was started as a simulcast of the FM programming. WFLN was sold in 1985 and became WDVT. WFLN-FM continued operations until 1997 when it was sold, changed format and was renamed WXXM. As of 2020 the Philadelphia 95.7 MHz station is identified by the call sign WBEN-FM.[4]
