WHSC is a sports talk radio station in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

It is the flagship radio station of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, who play in the Carolina League of Minor League Baseball as the Advanced-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers.

History

WHSC originally signed on as WJAL in 1977 in Conway, South Carolina. A few years later the call sign became WJXY, a call sign that stayed with the station for many years. WJXY, at one time, was a daytime-only Country music station in the 1970s. An FM frequency at 93.9 was added around 1990, at which time the AM switched to Southern gospel. In 1995, the format changed to adult standards, with most of the music coming from the AM Only satellite format. By this time the station had a limited nighttime signal.

In Fall 1999, Hurricane Floyd damaged WJXY's studios and transmitter site and forced WJXY-FM, WXJY and WSEA to move to the WSYN/WDAI studios near Inlet Square Mall. At the time WJXY aired Conway High School football; those games moved to WRNN-FM. WJXY was off the air for several months.[2] Early in 2000, the station was back, but not in stereo. Many listeners had complained.[3]

The station was assigned the WIQB call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on November 16, 2000.[1] For a time WIQB aired the same programming as oldies WSYN.

On February 15, 2003, WIQB became part of "The Team" all sports format along with WJXY-FM.[4]

On April 30, 2010, WIQB switched to southern gospel and changed its letters to WHSC.[1]

On March 5, 2012, WHSC became the new Myrtle Beach affiliate of Fox Sports Radio. Dan Patrick will air live in the market rather than on tape, and Jim Rome will follow. WHSC becomes the new station for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.[5]
