WSTF History
On July 10, 1985 WCKS changed its call letters to WSTF and is licensed to Cocoa Beach. The station moved its offices and studios to the Maitland Center in October of 1985 as part of a format change from Top 40 to soft-rock hits. Capitol Broadcasting Co. of Raleigh, N.C., bought WSTF earlier this year for an undisclosed price.
