WSHN (1550 AM) was a radio station licensed to serve Fremont, Michigan, USA. The station was owned by Noordyk Broadcasting.

History[edit]

During 2006, WSHN carried programming from ESPN Radio, but broadcast the feed strictly as fed, with no local commercials or even station identification.[citation needed]

In June 2007, the station went silent, broadcasting only an extremely low-power carrier signal with no modulation.[citation needed] The transmitter site and tower has also became neglected, with vines intertwined with the tower's base.[citation needed] According to the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth, Noordyk Broadcasting, Inc. was automatically dissolved on July 15, 2008.[2]

On October 5, 2012, the Federal Communications Commission cancelled WSHN's license and deleted the station's call sign from its database.
