WCXS - A History
WCXS-AM 1480 Arcadia – Fiorini Broadcasting, LLC’s WFLN in Arcadia switched its call letters to WCXS in the spring of 2020. The station’s studio building and transmitter/tower are located at 201 Asbury Street in Arcadia.

The station also carried Tampa Bay Bucs football, Orlando Magic basketball, and live play-by-play of DeSoto High School football.
