WYMM (1530 kHz) is an AM radio station in Jacksonville, Florida, broadcasting a Haitian Creole-language format. WYMM is branded as Radio Puissance Inter, roughly translated as "Radio Power International," targeting Jacksonville's Haitian community. WYMM is owned by Word Broadcasting of Louisville, Kentucky, which mostly owns English-language religious stations in Kentucky and Tennessee. WYMM is being sold to locally-owned AVM Broadcasting, which is operating the station under a local marketing agreement or LMA. Prior to March 2014, it was La Poderosa, playing a Regional Mexican music format.

WYMM operates in the daytime at 50,000 watts, the maximum power for AM stations permitted by the Federal Communications Commission. But because AM 1530 is a clear channel frequency, WYMM must sign-off at night, to protect WCKY in Cincinnati, the Class A station in the East on 1530 kHz. WYMM's transmitter, studios and offices are on Picketville Road in the Biltmore neighborhood of Jacksonville.[1]
