WXVW (1450 AM) is a radio station licensed to Jeffersonville, Indiana, serving the Louisville, Kentucky, area. The station is currently owned by Word Broadcasting Network, Inc.[1]

Under ownership of Cumulus Media, WXVW formerly simulcasted sports formatted WQKC 93.9 FM as "The Ticket", until that station changed to a classic hits music format under the call sign WLCL on November 20, 2008.[2]

On August 2, 2010, WQKC and WLCL went silent after Cumulus decided to cease operations in the Louisville market.[3]

On October 3, 2011, WQKC returned to the air, again with sports, branded as "The Sports Buzz".[4] Cumulus would formally sell the station to its programmer, Ryan Media, in November 2011.[5]

On May 21, 2013, WQKC changed their call letters to WXVW, which were the station's original call letters from its original sign on date (September 16, 1961-same as WLKY-TV) until 1997, when the call sign changed to WAVG.

Effective December 1, 2020, Ryan Media sold WXVW and translator W241CK to Word Broadcasting Network, Inc.
