Station History

1480am signed on in December 1952 with an Oldies/MOR format. In June 1999, both stations moved from the Times Building at Market and Indiana Streets to their current location. At Midnight on October 16, 2000, WRSW(AM) and WRSW-FM split formats, with 1480am flipping to a sports format (ESPN Radio). At 6:00AM on May 12, 2014, WRSW(AM) flipped formats from ESPN sports radio to a news-heavy talk station, as "1480 News Now."
