WVSP-FM (94.1 FM, "ESPN Radio 94.1") is a sports radio formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Yorktown, Virginia, USA, serving the Peninsula of Hampton Roads. WVSP-FM is owned and operated by Max Broadcast Group Holdings, LLC.
The station had originally signed on in the 1970s as WYVA-FM, serving Yorktown, Virginia with a country format. In 1990, it began a time brokered simulcast with then Adult Album Alternative formatted WKOC "The Coast" in Norfolk (now WNOB). In the mid 1990s, the simulcast was ended and the station switched to Adult Contemporary as WXEZ. The transmitter tower was moved to give the station a better signal over the Tidewater area. The station was sold in the mid 1990s to Barnstable Broadcasting and switched to a Gospel music format. Barnstable later sold its Tidewater market stations to locally based Max Media.
On October 5, 2009, WXEZ swapped formats with WGH (1310 AM) and became a sports radio station, and at that time changed their call letters to WVSP-FM. With this change, there are now two sports stations on the FM dial in Hampton Roads. ESPN Radio also gained an improved coverage area much greater than when they were located on 1310 AM. The Black Gospel format moved to 1310 AM.
