Owned by Allen Media Group
History:
This station started off as a new digital low power construction, initially assigned the W17DX-D calls.  It's owned by Woods Communications, which also owns WCOV TV, and transmits from the old WCOV tower at the station's studios in town.  The station appears to have come on in June or July of 2015, when it took on the WALE-LD calls.

It was announced in December 2021 that Woods Communications would be selling their Montgomery properties to Byron Allen's Allen Media Group for $28.5 million.  Allen owns several cable channels, broadcast stations and other media properties.
