Description: WCOS is a Sports Talk radio station licensed to Columbia, South Carolina and serves the Columbia market. The Clear Channel Communications outlet is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to broadcast at 1400 kHz with an ERP of 1 kW. The station goes by the name Sports Radio 1400 and its current slogan is "The Team."WCOS signed on in 1939, making it Columbia's second radio station. The station featured programming from NBC's Blue Network (which later became the ABC Radio Network) as well as local programming.In 1958, the station stunted by playing Dean Martin's "I Wish I Was In Dixie" over a period of 24 hours before switching over to the "Top 60 in Dixie" playlist, a format that it kept for the next 20 years under various monikers like "Super COS" , and "Position 14".In 1980, after being beaten in the ratings by rival FM Top 40 WNOK, WCOS changed over to Country, simulcasting parts of the broadcasting day of their sister FM, WCOS-FM. In the early 1990s, the station adjusted its format to satellite-fed Classic Country, but went back to simulcasting WCOS-FM within a year's time. In 1996, it adopted its present Sports talk format.In 2007, WCOS re-branded itself as "The Team".The station is owned by Clear Channel Communications, which owns Country WCOS-FM, CHR WNOK, Urban WXBT, Variety Hits WLTY, and News/Talk WVOC in the Columbia radio market.
