From 1974 to 1998, 2126 N Meridian in Indianapolis was a iconic significant address. It was the home of Indy’s first full time Black radio station WTLC-FM. In September 1992 a second WTLC debuted at that historic location at 1310 on the AM dial. Part of the new station’s programming was a weekday Black talk show that for the first time in Indianapolis gave the Black community an opportunity to have their say on issues.Amos listening to Wendell Ray The Noon Show host and Dane Middlebrook, son of late Willie Middlebrook host The Bottom Line discussing impact of Black talk in Indy
