WEMG (1310 AM, "Mega 1310") is a radio station broadcasting a Spanish CHR format. Licensed to Camden, New Jersey, USA, it serves the Philadelphia area. The station is currently owned by Davidson Media Station Wemg Licensee, LLC and features programing from Westwood One.

History

The station was originally owned by the City of Camden. It first came on the air in 1925 as WFBI, soon changed to WCAM. In the 1940s the station shared time on its frequency with WTNJ in Trenton and WCAP in Asbury Park; an agreement implemented in 1949 ended the time-share and allowed WCAM to become a full-time station, although with lower power than it had previously used.

WCAM broadcast a variety of formats over the years. In 1965-67 it was the Philadelphia-area affiliate of the NBC Radio Network, and it was the radio flagship of the Philadelphia Flyers in the team's second season, 1968-69. The station was not consistently profitable, and the city began attempting to sell it in the late 1960s. After a few false starts, a deal was finally made in the late 1970s and the station was sold to Philadelphia cable TV operator Wade Communications. Wade eventually changed the call sign to WSSJ, and a few years later sold the station to a group led by a local businessman and a station employee. In 1998 they sold WSSJ to Spanish-language broadcaster Mega Communications, which at the time operated WEMG on 900 kilohertz in Philadelphia. After a few years Mega sold the license for 900 and moved the WEMG call letters to the Camden-licensed station, then sold the operation to current owner Davidson Media in 2005.
