Welcome to the first and original 24 hour Caribbean-programmed radio station in the United States. Since 1987, the Heartbeat of the Caribbean-American community in the United States has been South Florida's very own WAVS 1170 AM. The history of WAVS 1170 AM is as glorious as its future. A group of visionaries came together in January 1987 to broadcast the first 24 hours of Caribbean programming for South Florida to enjoy. However, instead of just South Florida, the world took notice and WAVS 1170 AM has never looked back. WAVS 1170 AM continues to ride the wave of growing popularity shared by Reggae music, Soca music and overall Caribbean culture. In 1987, WAVS 1170 AM adopted a Caribbean format directed to the large West Indian population of South Florida, which up to that time, did not have a major media serving the Caribbean-American community. WAVS 1170 radio is a 24 hour terrestrial radio station which broadcasts at 5,000 watts non-directional. WAVS 1170 AM is licensed to Davie, Florida and serves the South Florida area including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and the Bahamas.
Ratings and Reviews
The program is very entertaining, it a great way to keep in touch with our caribbean roots. I especially love to have my Jamaican T on the way to work in the mornings. It a great start to the work day. I do agree however, that the website is in dire need of improvement.
