History

This station began regular broadcast operations on October 1, 1964, as WBCA-FM. Broadcasting with 3,000 watts of effective radiated power, the Faulkner Radio, Inc.-owned station was the FM sister station to WBCA (1110 AM). As with the AM station, the WBCA callsign was said to stand for “Wonderful Baldwin County Alabama”.

In August 1985, the Faulkner family agreed to transfer control of licensee Faulkner Radio Inc. to Faulkner University. In March 1986, Faulkner Radio Inc. agreed to formally transfer the broadcast license for WWSM to Faulkner University. In March 1987, Faulkner University reached an agreement to transfer the WWSM license to a new company called Faulkner-Phillips Media Inc.

The new call sign was chosen to accompany a new sports talk format which launched on September 11, 1993. WNSP claims to be the first sports talk station in the United States to operate on the FM band. With Clear Channel unwilling to continue the LMA, WNSP’s owners reached an agreement in May 1998 to sell this station to Dot Com Plus, Inc.
