WASN (1500 AM) is a radio station that is off air because of technical issues. Licensed to Youngstown, Ohio, USA, the station serves the Youngstown-Warren area. The station is owned by Helen Bednarczyk, through licensee Y-Town Radio Broadcasting, LLC.
Since January 1, 2010, WASN has carried an urban-focused talk format. In addition to Syndication One hosts Warren Ballentine, Rev. Al Sharpton and Michael Baisden, previous formats have included gospel music and Spanish-language programming. The station now streams on a 24-hour basis, owing to WASN's daytime-only status (to protect WFED in Washington, D.C.).
In February 2013, WGFT and sister station WASN were taken off air because of on-going technical reasons with a plan to return to the air by February 2014.
In February 2014, WGFT and WASN were sold by Bernard Ohio LLC to Y-Town Radio Broadcasting, LLC, who operates W232AI 93.7. The sale, at a purchase price of $16,501, was consummated on August 1, 2014.
On February 1st 2016, Y-town radio announced that WGFT,WASN, and W234CH will be sold to Laurel Highland Total Communications for $325,000. LHTC Media plans to relocate the translator to the Pittsburgh metro where it will simulcast adult standards WCNS (1480) Broker: Richard Parrish and Associates
