WASB (1590 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports format to the Brockport, New York, USA area. The station is currently owned by Brian McGlynn, through licensee Genesee Media Corporation.[1]

History[edit]

The station went on the air in 1970 as WADD and was owned by a group of local businessmen. The station broadcast on 1560 kHz with a power of 500w - daytime only. In 1976 the station was purchased by Canal Communications, inc. and the call letters changed to WWBK. Format was community oriented pop. In 1979 WWBK obtained a construction permit allowing the change to 1,000 watts full-time operation on 1590 kHz. The facility was sold in 1979 and the call letters changed to WJBT on 1980-04-14. On 1984-05-24, the station changed its call sign to the current WASB.[2]

The station was purchased by Genesee Media Corporation on July 8, 2013 at a price of $450,000.
