- Originated in
1965 as WBCA FM, companion of Bay Minette daytimer WBCA AM. Airing
easy listening, it became WWSM (Wonderful World of Stereo Music). In
the early 70's, it went black with the same calls (which now
conveniently meant Wonderful World of Soul Music). The class
A signal was too far out of Mobile to have a real impact, even after
the tower was moved closer. Aired country for a while, then in 1987
it picked up the WLPR calls and beautiful music format given up by
96.1's format change. Within two years it was again in black format
as WMML FM, in LMA with WMML AM. After a brief stint as Christian
rock outlet New Life 105, then news talk WNWT (who were the first in
the state to air the Don and Mike Show -- Zach), finally settling in
as WNSP, all sports formatted with ESPN radio. In May 2011 it
was announced the station was dropping ESPN due to high fees
required in a new contract. The new feed will come from Sporting
News Radio. SNR changed branding to Yahoo Sports
Radio on 1 August 2011. In 2013 the station dropped
Yahoo for Fox Sports. Paul Finebaum's ESPN-fed new sports shows is
to debut in the Mobile market on this station.
