WASN (1500 AM) is a radio station currently off air due to technical issues. Licensed to Youngstown, Ohio, USA, the station serves the Youngstown-Warren area. The station is currently owned by Bernard Ohio LLC.[2]

Al Sharpton and Michael Baisden, Previous formats have included gospel music and Spanish-language programming. The station now streams on a 24-hour basis, owing to WASN's daytime-only status (to protect WFED in Washington, D.C.).

WASN's sister station, WGFT/1330, carries an oldies/classic hits format.
