Noted Personalities:
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.
