WDBO


A bumper and window sticker from AM 580 WDBO in Orlando, Florida.  It's unclear whether WDBO's call letters were simply assigned in sequential alphabetical order (after WDBN in Bangor, Maine and before WDBP in Superior, Wisconsin) or if they were requested and stood for "Way Down By Orlando."  WDBO began broadcasting in 1924 from Rollins College in Winter Park.  By 1991 music had been phased out completely from their programming and an all-Talk format took over anchored by Rush Limbaugh.  WDBO is currently an all-Sports ESPN Radio affiliate.
