WCLM is a Spanish adult contemporary formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Laurel, Maryland, serving the Washington, DC metropolitan area[2] WCLM is owned by Alejandro Carrasco, through licensee ACR Media, Inc[3][4]

History

From 1965[5] to the early 1980s, the station then WLMD[6] broadcast a succession of formats in English; several radio personalities began their careers with the station[7][8][9][10][11]

Before 1969, WLMD was a MOR Middle Of The Road formatted radio station and held to the model created by WMAL and WBAL in Washington and Baltimore, respectively Its dismal ratings, primarily due to being a relatively low power AM station only broadcasting during the day with a poor coverage area, led to a format change beginning in 1975 The new Progressive Country music format was loved by the small audience it attracted and ratings increased modestly[citation needed] The station changed its call sign to WILC on December 19, 1985

ZGS Communications, then the owner of Telemundo affiliate WZDC-CD, purchased WILC in 2002[12]

On March 14, 2011, WILC flipped to a Spanish Adult Contemporary format as Romantica 900 AM On February 3, 2014, the station changed formats to Conservative Talk;[13] with a more Libertarian emphasis[14] On the same date, Wallis Communications began operating the station under a local marketing agreement[15] On November 5, 2014, WILC changed their format back to Spanish adult contemporary, branded as "Romantica 900"

Since January 1, 2016, WILC has been operated by Alejandro Carrasco under a local marketing agreement The station has continued with a Spanish adult contemporary format branded "Radio America 900" to correspond with Carrasco's news-talk WACA, long known as "Radio America 1540" As part of its exit from broadcasting, ZGS sold to Carrasco for $700,000 on January 29, 2018 WILC was ZGS' last remaining broadcast property after selling its television stations to Telemundo in the same month[16] Carrasco closed on the purchase of WILC on April 10, 2018, and then changed the station's call sign to WCLM on April 25, 2018
