About

WWBA (820 kHz) is a commercial AM radio station that airs a Sports talk radio format. Licensed to Largo, Florida, it serves the Tampa Bay area. The station is currently owned by Genesis Communications of Tampa Bay, LLC, and operated by NIA Broadcasting under an LMA. It was formerly known as "News Talk 820 WWBA."

WWBA is one of two 50,000-watt stations based in the Tampa Bay area with AM 1010 WHFS as the other. However, AM 820 is a clear channel frequency reserved for WBAP Fort Worth. So, WWBA reduces power to 1,000 watts at night to avoid interference and uses a directional antenna at all times. WWBA's transmitter is on 8th Avenue SE in Largo.[1]

WWBA is also heard on two FM translator stations: 96.7 W244EG in Tampa and 98.3 W252DF in Largo.
