WEBY (1330 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a News Talk Information format. Licensed to Milton, Florida, USA, the station serves the Pensacola area. The station is currently owned by Spinnaker License Corporation and features programing from CNN Radio and Jones Radio Network.[1]

History

The date of the station's first broadcast is unknown, however it was operating as early as 1957 and ceased operation on July 2, 1972 pursuant to the FCC failing to renew the station's license. The station returned to the air as WSWL on 1982-09-20. On 1983-11-18, the station changed its call sign to WAVX, and on 1985-07-01 to the current WEBY.[2]

FCC Complaint and Loss of License (1972)

In 1962, Ben Henry Pooley, an on-air personality, broadcast an editorial attacking John C. Boles, who was running for public office. When the station applied to have its license renewed in 1972, Boles claimed that the station never provided him broadcast time in which to respond. As a result of the complaint and investigation, the FCC declined to renew the station's license and ordered the station to cease operation on July 3, 1972. The case has been cited in multiple complaints and lawsuits involving other stations.[3]
