WSBX (1020 AM) is an American radio station that is not currently broadcasting. The station's license remains active, though, and it is licensed to the suburb of Ochlocknee, Georgia and served the Thomasville, Georgia and Tallahassee, Florida areas. It first began broadcasting in 1983 under the call sign WJEP. The station licensee is Doreen A. Blood.[1]

History[edit]

WSBX began broadcasting as WJEP in 1983 with a Christian format until Georgia Triangle Broadcasting purchased the station from Lifeline Ministries in 2008. The call sign was changed to WSBX on 4 November 2008,[2] and on December 8, 2008 it changed format to Hot Talk. Two months later, on 7 February 2009, the format was changed to Active Rock. Again only two months later, on 7 April, the format was changed to Rock en Español, then to Spanish talk "Radio El Chongo", before being changed again to modern rock.

Current Status[edit]

As of February 25, 2012, the station is identified by the FCC as licensed but silent, meaning that it is not broadcasting. WSBX is reported by its owners as being for sale.[3]
