WSNW (1150 AM and 94.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Contemporary and Soft Rock music format. Licensed to Seneca, South Carolina, USA. The station is currently owned by Georgia-Carolina Radiocasting Company.[2]

Programming[edit]

Programming on WSNW includes mostly adult contemporary music, with hours set aside between 8AM and 9AM for "Coffee time" and "Seneca AM," and between 12PM and 1PM for local news. The station also covers high school sports games involving the Seneca Bobcats.

WSNW is an affiliate of the Atlanta Braves radio network, the largest radio affiliate network in Major League Baseball.[3]

History[edit]

WSNW was an adult standards radio station whose programming could also be heard on WBFM.[citation needed]

WSNW is the oldest radio station in Oconee County.

In 2008, WSNW added a repeater station at 103.3 FM.

WSNW will have to move its city of license to Walhalla because WGOG will be moving its city of license to Powdersville, and the FCC is requiring that a radio station continue to be licensed to Walhalla. WSNW will be increasing its power to 5000 watts during the day so that the station can still use the existing tower on Radio Station Road. WSNW can remain at its Ram Cat Alley studios because the studios must be within 25 miles of the city of license. Programming will also remain the same.[1]

In March of 2014, WNSW became part of the Georgia-Carolina Radiocasting Company, changed format to adult contemporary music, and moved from 103.3 FM to 94.1 FM, taking on the brand name, "The Lake." The focus of the station shifted away from local news and talk radio, and no longer hosts any talk radio programming.
