WBIS (1190 AM) was an American radio station broadcasting a News Talk Information format. Licensed to Annapolis, Maryland, USA, the station served the Baltimore, Maryland area. The station was last owned by Nations Radio, LLC (a subsidiary of Potomac Radio, LLC).
On October 29, 2008, Leesburg, Virginia-based WCRW/1200 (which previously had the WAGE callsign) received a permit to move to 1190 kHz as well as to raise its power to 50 kW. (As of April 2010, WAGE and WBIS had effectively the same ownership.) On April 21, 2010, the FCC approved applications for WAGE to increase its daytime power to 50 kW and nighttime power to 1300 watts from different antenna sites on the new frequency. Once WAGE moved to 1190, WBIS would be forced to shut down. On December 30, 2010, WBIS (1190 AM) in Annapolis, MD was shut down to permit testing of the new WAGE transmission equipment and tower array on 1190. Renamed WCRW, the station commenced regular broadcast operations on 1190 AM on April 11, 2011.
