Other Information:
This channel started out in the 50's as a country station on 1050 with the calls WHBO (HillsBorOugh county -- not the pay TV channel). When the FCC broke down 1040's clear channel status, WHBO was able to get more power by moving there. The format was 50's based oldies for a while, then it simulcast a Tampa FM adult contemporary station. Relicensed from Tampa to suburban Pinellas Park, the station has a superb daytime signal over the salt water path. The WWBA calls were on 680 AM in Tampa-St. Petersburg a few years ago.
