WLTT (1180 AM), known as "Port City Radio", is a news/talk radio station licensed to Carolina Beach, North Carolina, USA. The station serves the Wilmington, North Carolina area. The station is currently owned by Sea-Comm, Inc. Inc.[2]

History[edit]

WMYT was a Contemporary Christian station known as Radio Alegre.[3]

Late in 2010, Brian Schimmel of Sunrise Broadcasting said Sea-Comm Media would buy WMYT from Carolina Christian Radio, which bought the WUIN frequency.[4]

The call letters changed to WUIN on January 1, 2011 and changed to WSFM on January 11, 2011.[1]

The format changed to classical music with the name "Bach FM". For several years, the station used a translator at 95.9, which was changed to a rebroadcast of WMFD in 2014.

On December 2, 2013, WSFM switched to a talk format previously heard on 93.7 and 106.3 FM, which switched to a country music format called The Dude at 12 noon.[5] On December 10, WSFM changed its call letters to WLTT, the former call sign of 106.3 FM.[1]

On March 17, 2014, WLTT began simulcasting WBNE.[6]
