WBSR (1450 AM) is a United States radio station licensed to Pensacola, Florida, USA. The station serves the Pensacola area. WBSR is the second oldest radio station in Pensacola. WBSR had been broadcasting sports talk from 2011 to 2017. The station has been owned by Easy Media, Inc. for over 30 years. WBSR was one of the first AM radio stations on the Florida Gulf Coast to add an FM translator. WBSR can be heard 24 hours a day at 1450 AM and 101.1 FM.
