History of WOOO
Mr. Brian Tolby, past owner of WSBB-AM 1230, New Smyrna Beach, fills us in on the history of WOOO-FM. "...That station was to be a Winter Park FM, WABR, owned by the Petersons who also owned Peterson Outdoor Advertising in Orange & Seminole counties, who were sitting on an FM permit. I filed to move it to Deland and it went on the air in l965. I sold that station in l976 to Joe Gratz who owned (WELE-AM 1380) and he changed the calls to WELE-FM..."
