WWFE (670 kHz), known as "La Poderosa", is a commercial AM radio station in Miami, Florida, broadcasting to the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area. WWFE has a Spanish language talk radio format, with an emphasis on Cuban news and music. The radio studios and offices are on SW 27th Avenue in Miami.[1]

By day, WWFE is powered at 50,000 watts, the maximum for commercial AM stations.[2] But 670 AM is a United States clear channel frequency. So WWFE must reduce nighttime power to 1,000 watts to prevent interference to the skywave signal of WSCR in Chicago, which is the principal Class A station on 670 AM. (The other Class A station on this frequency is KDLG in Dillingham, Alaska.) WWFE broadcasts from a directional antenna at all times, with a six-tower array used at night.
