WOAP (1080 AM, "The Big 1080") is a radio station broadcasting an oldies format. Licensed to Owosso, Michigan, it first began broadcasting in 1948. The station's 1,000-watt signal reaches outlying areas of the Flint and Lansing markets. The station is allowed to operate at greatly reduced power under its presunrise authorization and postsunset authorization permits at the times specified in the permits. "The Big 1080" returns the traditional oldies format to a large chunk of mid-Michigan that had been without the format for some time, as the Lansing market no longer has an oldies station (with the closest things to an oldies station in that market being "America's Best Music" WXLA-AM and classic hits WLMI-FM) and WHNN-FM, which serves the Tri-Cities and Flint, has moved to a classic hits sound and dropped many 1960s titles from its playlist. WOAP changed to a News/Talk format in February 2010.
