WEAS-FM is an Mainstream Urban radio station licensed to Springfield, Georgia but serving the Savannah Area. The station is owned by Cumulus Media.

WEAS(FM) began operation in 1968 as an easy listening station to counter the country music format of the sister AM station (which had been WJIV, with an R&B format, until 1960); the station's format was freeform progressive rock in the early part of the next decade. By the mid 1970's, the FM station switched to a similar urban format as today, as did the sister AM station (WEAS-AM 900 kHz, 5000-watt, daytime), prior to it being sold and changed to a sports information station. The AM and FM stations were previously owned by E.D. "Dee" Rivers,Jr, son of a former governor of Georgia.

WEAS-FM was previously licensed to Savannah, but moved to Springfield in order to allow WTYB to move to Tybee Island, in the Savannah metropolitan area. The station has historically targeted the African-American population in the Savannah area.
