WXNY-FM is a radio station that broadcasts a Spanish language format. It is licensed to Univision Radio at 96.3 FM, and airs in the New York City metropolitan area. The station first came on the air on 105.9 FM in the 1960s as WHBI, which was originally owned by Hoyt Brothers Inc.. In the 1980s, the station - by then property of Multicultural Radio Broadcasting - went by the call letters WNWK, and aired leased-access ethnic programming. On July 14, 2009 it was announced that WCAA would move to the 96.3 frequency as a result of Univision radio buying the frequency. As a result, at 8 p.m. on October 8, 2009, classical WQXR-FM moved from 96.3 to 105.9, while WCAA moved to 96.3, dropped the La Kalle name and adopted a new name on October 15. It had been speculated the imaging for the station name would be X96.3 as Univision had registered the domain name X963FM.com as well as requested call letters WXNY from the FCC. In addition, the RDS text data on car radios was displaying "96 X".
