As a daytime only station, its frequency is occupied by WBT from Charlotte, North Carolina, in the evenings.

WNAP used to be a major station (nicknamed "The Buzzard") in Indianapolis, Indiana, on 93.1 FM from 1968 to 1986. The call sign was again reused by that station from 1994 to 2000, but with an -FM suffix due to this Pennsylvania AM-band station having taken over the root call sign in the interim.
