WKCI-FM (101.3 FM) is a commercial radio station broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) format. Licensed to the suburb of Hamden, Connecticut, it serves the New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport areas. The station is owned by iHeartMedia.
The studios are in Radio Towers Park on Benham Street in Hamden, where it shares facilities with sister stations WELI and WAVZ. WKCI-FM transmits a full Class B signal, broadcasting with 12,000 watts from a 915-foot (279 m) tower, the equivalent of 50,000 watts at 500 feet (150 m). The transmitter is on Madmare Mountain in Hamden near the WTNH transmitter site (where WKCI-FM formerly transmitted from until moving to its current tower in 2003).
Throughout the 1980s, WKCI was an affiliate of Rick Dees Weekly Top 40. WKCI-FM began broadcasts in HD Radio in December 2004. Its HD2 signal airs a mainstream urban format, providing a second option to WZMX, and is simulcast on FM translator W265DB at 100.9 MHz, known as "100.9 The Beat." 100.9 The Beat signed on the air at 12:00 a.m. on June 23, 2015.
