Recent License History[edit]

Prior to Hurricane Katrina, WBSN's 8,500 watt transmitter was co-located with that of TV station WDSU and shared their transmitting tower. After the WDSU transmitter building was flooded during Katrina, WBSN applied for, and was granted Special Temporary Authority (STA) from the FCC to transmit at 5,000 watts from a multi-purpose tower in Algiers. More recently, the station applied for and was granted a permanent license to transmit from the Algiers tower location at 11,000 watts.[1]
