WCYT (91.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Indie format. Licensed to Lafayette Township, Indiana, USA, the station serves the Fort Wayne area. The station is currently owned by Southwest Allen County Schools. Studios are located at Homestead Senior High School.
It was founded in 1995 under the name Y91. In the 1995-1996 school year it went on the air. It quickly became the first high school radio station with a website. The student-designed website can be found at www.wcyt.org. In 1998 the name was changed to "The Point" with the motto "What Music Sounds Like." In 1999, and again in 2001, the station broadcast live from The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
For a period of two years the station would have the motto "Tomorrow's Hits Today," before switching to "Fort Wayne's Only Alternative." The motto changed again in the summer of 2011, when the format changed to Indie/Alternative, to "Where Music is the Point." Along with playing music and deejaying, the students also broadcast school sporting events live on the air. The student broadcasters have garnered moderate attention with columns written about them in local newspapers and magazines as well as video reports on local news television stations.
The station is currently the only indie rock station in Fort Wayne. The popularity of the station increased when X102 left the Fort Wayne airwaves. The main source of growing popularity is the fact that "the Point" is a non-commercial radio station and offers 59 minutes of music every hour (only using one minute for sponsor recognition, public service announcements and station self-promotions). The station switched to a 24-hour format on February 2, 2002 (02.02.02).
