WYNT (95.9 FM) is an adult contemporary station formerly located in Upper Sandusky, Ohio now located with its studios in Marion, Ohio and its transmitter and city of license moved to Caledonia, Ohio. It broadcasts music from the 70s through today as "Majic 95.9" and is part of the Clear Channel Marion cluster which includes WDIF-FM and WMRN-AM. Its Cleveland FM sister WMJI also uses the "Majic" branding for its 60s/70s oldies station.

The station had for years, served as a full-service adult contemporary/country music station serving Upper Sandusky, the seat of Wyandot County, as well as the communities surrounding Upper Sandusky, which is not to be confused with the town of Sandusky, Ohio...about 50 miles due north in Erie County, best known as the home of Cedar Point.

History

According to the 1993 Broadcasting and Cable Yearbook, WYNT first went on the air on October 1, 1986 with the original call letters WYAN. However, according to former program director Gary James, the station had been silent for a period of five years, but it's not known if that had happened before or after 1986. FCC records do however, indicate the application history for this station going back as far as September 1, 1982. The station was founded by Triplett Broadcasting of Bellefontaine, Ohio which also owned the former WTOO (now WBLL) in Bellefontaine, founded the former WPNM (currently WBUK) in Ottawa and the former WAXT (now WHTI (FM)) in Alexandria, Indiana. Triplett Broadcasting later sold WYNT and its remaining stations after filing for bankruptcy in 1986.

The station had returned to the air under the ownership of then-morning DJ Forest Whitehead and a local funeral director, who stated he would invest in the station on the condition that it would provide the community with local high school sports game broadcasts, especially football.

According to [http://www.radio-locator.com the Radio Locator website] , a construction permit has been granted to move the transmitter and city of license from Upper Sandusky to Caledonia located northeast of Marion, Ohio.

As of November 20, 2006, this station was advertised for sale, along with other Clear Channel-owned radio stations operating out of Marion, Ohio. In May 2007, WYNT and the other stations of the Marion cluster of Clear Channel Communications was to have been sold to Florida-based GoodRadio.TV LLC, but the deal has since collapsed.
