WLSG (1340 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an oldies format. Licensed to Wilmington, North Carolina, USA, it serves the Wilmington area. The station is currently owned by Harry Brown and Ashley Moseley, through licensee B&M Broadcasting LLC, who purchased WLSG from Olin Bohanan in December 2014. The station is repeated on W231CL 94.1 FM in Wilmington.
WGNI was a Top 40 station in the days when the format was heard on AM radio. On December 24, 1981 its call letters changed to WAAV. On May 5, 1984 its call letters changed to WBMS.
In May 20, 1996, Community Broadcasting sold WBMS, WMFD and WUOY radio stations to a new company called Ocean Broadcasting. WBMS, a CNN Headline News station, became WAHH, airing the "Radio AAHS" format for children, as well as some local content. The format included news, sports and games as well as music by James Taylor, Mariah Carey, The Muppets, Ren and Stimpy, Gloria Estefan, Animaniacs, Craig and Company, Smoking Armadillos, Fun Factory and Better Than Ezra.
The acquisition of WLSG by B&M Broadcasting was consummated on February 3, 2015, at a purchase price of $60,000. On February 5, 2015, WLSG changed their format to oldies, branded as "94.1 The Beach".
