WSEB AM & FM - A History

WSEB-AM 1340 & WSEB-FM 105.5 Sebring – South Central Florida’s WSEB-AM was Sebring’s second radio station. It went on the air in 1959 with a power of 250 watts (later increased to 1,000 watts day/250 night around 1969) on 1340 – the frequency previously for WJCM, which had moved to 960. For most of its time on the air, WSEB’s offices and studios were located at 2500 S. Lakeview Drive.  

Owners of WSEB included Radio Sebring, Inc. (its original owner-1959), Highlands Broadcasting Corp. (William K. Diehl, president-1961), Dixon Industries (1964), H. Philip Nesbitt and Maryan B. Nesbitt (1965), Erway Broadcasting (Guy S. Erway, president/GM 1966), Sebring Broadcasting Corp. (Francis J. Matrangola, president 1971), and Morgan Broadcasting Co. (Harry J. Morgan, president 1973).

3,000 watt WSEB-FM went on the air in 1965 at 105.5, duplicating the programming from WSEB-AM. In 1969, the FM calls became WANZ, but reverted back to WSEB in 1972. The station adopted a religious format and became WSKP-FM in 1974.

WSEB-AM was sold to Highlands Broadcasting in 1984 and flipped its calls to WITS.
