WSUN has a phenomenal daytime signal which penetrates the coastal areas around Mobile and Pensacola. In its early days, WSUN was a MoR station, owned by the city of St. Petersburg. (!) From the 60's to the 80's, it was a highly rated country outlet known as "Sun Country", until overtaken by FM. Under new ownership (Cox Broadcasting) in the early 90's, it went to the present news/talk format; sold again to Paxon, it went nostalgia briefly. LMA'd to a local cable company to simulcast their local all-news channel and changed calls to WSAA. Now has switched dial posititions with WDAE, which was at 1250. WDAE history will come soon.
