WZSP - A History
WZSP-FM 105.3 Nocatee – In 1998, Heartland Broadcasting (Harold “Hal” M. Kneller, Jr., president) launched WZSP on 105.3 FM. The 6,000-watter is licensed to the city of Nocatee and broadcasts a directional pattern using a 400-foot tower at 2789 S.W. Addison Avenue in Arcadia. Studios are located with sister station WZZS midway between Zolfo Springs and Arcadia on US Highway 17.
Today (2014), WZSP is La Zeta 105.3 and airs an adult contemporary regional Mexican format targeted to an Hispanic audience 25-54. La Zeta 105.3 is also a CNN en Espanol and FRN Hispana affiliate.
In early April 2014, WZSP and its sister FM, WZZS in Zolfo Springs, were sold to Solmart Media LLC (Tomas Martinez and Mercedes Soler) with plans for WZSP to keep its regional Mexican format.
