WSTR (910 AM, "Sportsradio 910") is a Rockville radio station owned by WSBC Radio, a division group of WSBC Corporation. The call letters, WSTR stands for W Sports Talk Radio.

HistoryEdit

The station went on the air in February of 1926.

The station is famous for it's days in the 1960s, under ownership of Storz Broadcasting, when it presented a pop music format & competed vigorously with rival WQXA (@ 790 AM). These years were the WSTR "glory years." In 1964, WSTR promoted the Beatles heavily prior to their 2nd appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, which took place in Miami Beach.

In 1979, after many years as contemporary music station, competition from FM competitors forced the station to switch to a country music format, but not after running a montage of music & sound bites from it's Top 40 days.

Around 1990, WSTR became an all-sports station. WSTR airs "SportsNation" on the afternoon drive from 4-6:30 PM. WSTR airs "Mike & Mike in the Morning" on the AM drive from 6-10 AM. "SportsCenter AM" airs from 5-6 AM while "Tirico & Van Pelt" airs from 1-3 PM & then "The Scott Van Pelt Show" from 3-4 PM.

Currently, WSTR is the Florida Marlins & Florida Panthers flagship station. Plus, we carry the University of Miami Hurricanes & select Miami Dolphins games.
