Update 8/29: Telesouth has closed on its purchase of 103.1 WOSM and has flipped the station to Talk as part of its “Supertalk Mississippi” network. Original Report 6/26: Telesouth Communications is acquiring Southern Gospel 103.1 WOSM Ocean Springs, MS for $1.5 Million. The station will become the eleventh affiliate of Telesouth’s statewide “Supertalk Mississippi” network, which currently is lacking coverage over Biloxi. WOSM currently operates with 50kW at 140 meters and holds a Construction Permit to increase to 100kW at 187 meters that will also give the station some coverage in the Mobile, AL market. Telesouth is teasing that a “familiar coast voice” will join the network when it debuts on WOSM later this summer.
