WCAT (1390 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Sports radio format. Licensed to Burlington, Vermontmarker, USA, the station serves the Burlington-Plattsburgh area. The station is currently owned by Radio Broadcasting Services, Inc. and features programing from ESPN Radio.

History

The station went on the air as WDOT in April 1954 on the 1400 frequency, and was Burlington's top-40 radio station for years. The station later moved to its current position on 1390, and was allowed to broadcast with 5,000 watts of power both daytme and nighttime. The station uses a three tower directional antenna at night to protect 1390 co-channels in Syracuse, New Yorkmarker (WFBLmarker), Presque Isle, Mainemarker (WEGPmarker), and Plymouth, Massachusettsmarker (WPLMmarker).

The station changed its call letters to WKDR on June 1, 1993. The WKDR calls originated on the AM 1070 frequency, licensed to Plattsburgh, New Yorkmarker (which now operates as WTWKmarker), and the move benefited WKDR, since its previous position operates only in the daytime, protecting the former 50,000 watt clear channel (1-B) station, CBA from Moncton, New Brunswick.

The station changed its callsign to WVAA on September 24, 2002, and to the current WCAT on August 21, 2006.
