WPOP (1410 AM; "Fox Sports Radio 1410") is a radio station in Hartford, Connecticut, USA broadcasting a sports radio format. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications and features programing from Fox Sports Radio and Dial Global.[3][4]

WPOP was a very popular top 40 radio station during the 1960s and early 1970s. The station achieved its highest level of success during this era. WPOP dropped its pop music format in June 1975 in favor of all-news, carrying NBC's News and Information Service.

WPOP's last logo as "ESPN Radio 1410"

On January 27, 2012, the station began to simulcast on WPKX (97.9 FM); that station eventually changed its call letters to WUCS. WPOP switched from ESPN Radio to Fox Sports Radio on March 5, 2012, with ESPN Radio remaining on WUCS; the station also carries The Jim Rome Show and the existing local show The Drive (simulcast on WAVZ in New Haven).[5]
