WSDV (1450 kHz) is a radio station owned and operated by iHeartMedia, Inc. for the Sarasota-Bradenton market. It was the Sarasota affiliate of 970 WFLA until 2002.

On January 3, 2014, WSDV and its simulcast sister station WDDV (1320 AM) rebranded themselves as "Sunny" and diverted from adult standards to an Oldies/Soft AC format.[1]

On March 17, 2016, WSDV and WDDV switched to a news/talk format.[2]

On November 1, 2017, WSDV split from its simulcast with WDDV and began stunting with Christmas music. On January 1, 2018, the station became 103.9 Kiss FM with a Top 40/CHR format, not the original hot adult contemporary format as first reported.[3]
