WFLL (1400 AM; "Nossa Rádio 1400") is a radio station in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, serving the Miami-Fort Lauderdale radio market. It airs a Brazilian Portuguese Ethnic format. The station is owned by Mark Jorgenson, through licensee ACM JCE IV B LLC[1]

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WFTL on September 16, 1946. It was first located on a houseboat on the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The call was changed briefly to WFFL and then on July 16, 2003, the station changed its call sign to the current WFLL.[2]

Up until March 1, 2008, the station was broadcasting a Caribbean format using the name "Mystik 1400." WFLL then served as an ESPN Radio affiliate until the third week of August 2010. It aired a country music format through September 11, 2011. The station changed to a Brazilian Portuguese station on the following day.

WFLL, along with co-owned stations KBXD, WFTL, and WMEN, was purchased out of bankruptcy by Mark Jorgenson's ACM JCE IV B LLC in a transaction that was consummated on August 6, 2015, at a purchase price of $5.5 million.
