WNMA (1210 AM) is an ESPN Deportes Radio affiliate radio station. It is the first radio station in South Florida's radio history to air around-the-clock sports programming in Spanish, and the first Spanish ESPN Radio affiliate in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area.

The station is licensed to Miami Springs, Florida, and serves the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area. It can be received from as far north as Jupiter to as far south as the upper Florida keys. The station is owned by Multicultural Broadcasting and is operated by Deportes Media of Florida.[1]

It broadcasts with 47 kilowatts in the day, and 2.5 kilowatts at night. Their nocturnal directional pattern protects 1210 in Philadelphia. Until Deportes Media took over the franchise, ESPN Deportes aired on 1450 AM.

Originally WOAH, a 250 watt daytimer on 1220, the station aired a country music format. The station has also in the past been known as WCMQ, featuring Latin music in AM stereo, broadcasting as a Spanish Variety format with some brokered air-time.
