WHBT (1410 AM) is an American gospel music station broadcasting in Tallahassee, Florida, United States. It is licensed to and serves the Tallahassee, Florida area. The station is currently owned by Cumulus Media. Its studios are located in the westside of Tallahassee and its transmitter is based due north of downtown near I-10.

Prior to September 3, 2008, it was a sports/talk radio station known as ESPN 1410 The Fan. It has aired programs from ESPN Radio and its own studios such as Mike and Mike in the Morning, Colin Cowheard, then WHBT Sports Director Ron Vitrano's "Fan Forum". Other programs that aired were Vitrano, and ESPN's Mike Tirico. WHBT was the current home of the University of Miami Hurricanes and Miami Dolphins Football Radio Broadcasts in Tallahassee.

On September 3, 2008 radio station WHBT abandoned all sports programming in favor of its current Gospel format. Current Program Director Darius "Doc D" Baker has added many additions to the station including Get Up Mornings with Erica Campbell in the morning, Morgan Dukes in the mid-day and Doc D & Miss Monique which is a highly rated live show that airs weekdays from 3pm-6pm. Ratings for the station have increased tremendously since its change in format. Revenue has tripled [1] Due to its popularity and success, Heaven 1410AM now transmits on 98.3 FM also, making it the first 24-hour FM gospel station in the market! [2]
