WADB is a sports radio station serving the Jersey shore's Southern Monmouth and Northern Ocean county area as a Fox Sports Radio affiliate. This station broadcasts on AM frequency 1310 kHz and is under ownership of Millennium Shore License Holding Company, LLC.

History

WADB at one time was playing a country music format as "Shore Country 1310" until June 25, 2007 when it became a full time ESPN Deportes affiliate, broadcasting in Spanish. Starting in January 2008, WADB became a Fox Sports Radio affiliate and goes by the slogan "National Sports with a Shore View". WADB mostly broadcasts Fox Sports Radio network programing. The station also broadcasts Lakewood Blue Claws minor league baseball from sister station WOBM-AM.

The WADB call letters previously belonged to the first station to occupy the FM frequency of 95.9 mHz and licensed to Point Pleasant, N.J. That station was started in the fall of 1968 by the late Adamant Brown of Rumson, N.J. The call letters stand for Adamant and Dorothy Brown (his wife). WADB (FM) featured a so-called "beautiful music" format at its inception with very few deviations from that format until September of 1996 when new owners changed the call letters to WRAT and adopted the so-called "active rock" format, which relies heavily on rock music featuring guitars.
