Programming

"Southern Sports Now" with Seth Harp is the station's local program. WSPO also features national hosts Tim Brando and Dan Patrick. During the 2009 football season, WSPO will air 34 college games from Westwood One and Sports USA Radio Network, plus three NFL games each Sunday and Monday Night Football.[1] WSPO is also the home for the ACC Basketball and NCAA Basketball Tournaments.

History

WCSC was the first radio station in Charleston as well as the second oldest in the state of South Carolina. It was started out by Fred Jordan and Lewis Burk on May 14th, 1930.

WCSC was a top 40 station. The WXTC call letters were moved from the station that is now WSUY.

WXTC was "Heaven 1390" with a gospel format until the end of 2008, when it went to a classic soul format, which it carried until June 2009. The station adopted the WSPO calls (previously at 95.9 WIOP) in June 2009 and went to sports-talk.

On March 10, 2010, Don Imus replaced Tony D, whose last day was February 26.

Translators

WSPO programming is also carried on a broadcast translator to extend or improve the coverage area of the main station.
