B-103 first signed on the air in February 1993 as WBSI, broadcasting from the Bay Shore location on Sunrise Highway and playing oldies from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.


The station's weekday on-air personalities include Jim O'Brien AKA "Big Voice Guy" on mornings and The Wiseman on Afternoons. Weekend personalities include Paul DeGrocco, Mike Ewald, and Chris Simmons.

WBZO — along with WHLI, WWSK, and WKJY — was sold by Barnstable Broadcasting to Connoisseur Media effective July 3, 2012 for $23 million. Since then, Connoisseur has laid off many employees that had been at Barnstable for numerous years, citing "money saving consolidation" as the reason for the cuts.
