    Default Longshot UNID on 1240

    So at about the 10 second mark into this clip is when I hear an ID being given. At first I heard WTC?? and a town mentioned before the CBS News ping. As I listened to it further I definitely hear the W... blank... C... and town. I also possibly hear "Gulfport" being mentioned but that's just my ears. Mississippi on 1kw would be a longshot. Anyone else with better ears hear anything? Again at 10 seconds in is what I'm focusing on.
    Thanks!

    Dig out the ear buds time! And it sounds like WZTV to me (Nashville 17). Nashville has a SS on 1240, but I'm having a hard time coming up with any Spanish in that mess. I don't hear the CBS ping that you say you hear.

    I definitely hear the CBS bongs, but the callsign sounds closer to "WTCD".
