WFLT (1420 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an Urban Gospel format. Licensed to Flint, Michiganmarker, it first began broadcasting in 1955.

As WAMM, 1420 AM was the area's premier African-American-oriented R&B station for years and also provided an early on-air job for future American Top 40 host Casey Kasem (who moved on to WJBKmarker in Detroit and then to Los Angeles). Though primarily targeted at black listeners, WAMM had many white listeners as well.

WAMM lost market share after the 1979 debut of Flint's first urban FM station, WDZZmarker, and adopted Al Ham's Music of Your Life format in early 1981, changing its calls to the current WFLT. The station soon switched to religious programming and was purchased in 1990 by the Christian Evangelical Broadcasting Association, the current owners, who converted the station back to its African-American-oriented roots, but this time as the successful gospel-music station that it still is today.
