WHBO - A History
WHBO-AM 1470 Dunedin – In October 2005, Genesis Communications reinstated Tampa Bay’s historic WHBO calls on Dunedin’s AM-1470, and established a sports/talk format branded Sportsradio AM-1470. The WHBO call letters were previously used in the market from 1948 to 1991 – first as a Tampa country music station on AM-1050 and then as an oldies station licensed to Pinellas Park on AM-1040.
In September 2008, WHBO’s sports programming moved from AM-1470 to AM-1040. Its Tampa offices and studios at 4300 West Cypress relocated to 800 8th Avenue SE in Largo in 2010. The sports station dropped its ESPN affiliation and became one of the inaugural NBC Sports Network stations on October 1, 2012.
