The station has an 18-year history of broadcasting to the Spanish-speaking community in the Miami area. Prior to the change to Spanish sports radio, the station branded itself as WOCN Radio 1450, broadcasting a World Ethnic-talk format. It was a time-brokered station which sold its time to programmers who then sold their own advertisements. The station was known in the Cuban-American community for its leftist commentators.[2]
