- 940, in the
50's, was WTPS. It was a typical network affiliated adult station --
the calls represented ownership by a local newspaper, the Times
Picayune States. The channel was bought around 1960 by a black
station and it became WYLD. For the next 25 tears it was a
formidable competitor in the New Orleans market as a soul station.
When FM compeition -- including its own WYLD FM -- caused the AM to
diminish, it switched over to black gospel.
The station was knocked off the air briefly by Hurricane Zeta, in
late October 2020.
