History[edit]

One of the oldest radio stations in Maryland, WCAO was a CBS affiliate during the 1930s and 1940s. From the 1950s through the 1970s, WCAO was a major Top 40 station in Baltimore, flipping to a country format in 1982, competing with FM counterpart WPOC. In 1991, WCAO switched to its current urban gospel format; it is now a competitor to similarly-formatted WWIN-AM "Spirit 1400".
