History of WOSL
License Of WOSL Threatened
By Roulhac Hamilton
Orlando Sentinel 
Sep 11, 1964
The Federal Communications Commission Thursday put the operators of radio station WOSL at Kissimmee on notice that it has accepted for filing an application for a new Kissimmee station which would take over the frequency now used by WOSL. The commission also indicated a willingness to accept other applications which also might conflict with WOSL's application for renewal of its license. The Commission said it had accepted for filing the application of J. Patrick Beacom for establishment of a standard broadcast station operating with 1,000 watts power, daytime only, on the 1220 kilocycle band used by WOSL. The Beacom application for a new station and the WOSL application for license renewal are "mutually exclusive," FCC said. It said that on October 20 it will consider the Beacom application as "ready and available for processing," along with any other applications on file October 19 which involve "a conflict necessitating a hearing."
