WPBS is an AM radio station licensed to the city of Conyers, Georgia in the Atlanta, Georgia radio market.

WPBS is considered a Class D AM broadcast facility by the Federal Communications Commission operating with 12,000 watts of power during the daytime, and 5,000 Watts during critical hours (around sunrise and sunset) using a non-directional antenna. The station holds a construction permit to increase daytime power to 50kW but must sign-off after local sunset to protect WHO in Des Moines, Iowa.

The station is in no way related to the Watertown, New York-based PBS member station WPBS-DT, NPR, or the Public Broadcasting Service.

The station signed on at 1050 kHz in 1979 as WCGA. The format was a locally-produced and formatted CHR. It became automated as WTPO in 1986. The format became gospel as WPBE ("Praise 1040") in 1989. In September 2003, the station changed operating frequency from its original 1050 kHz to its current 1040 kHz. In May 2005, the station changed its programming format from gospel to the "Planeta X" Spanish talk radio format (which moved from WPBC).

In early 2008, it changed formats to "Spice Radio Atlanta."
