History:
WAMI-FM signed on the air late in 1973.  The format was block programming of country, gospel, easy-listening and contemporary music.  The format changed to all easy-listening in 1986, then to country a year or two later.  The power was originally 3,000 watts.  Power was increased to 3,400 watts in the early 90s.

 
Although there's a construction perimit listed for this station, sources say there are no plans to build out this facility. Apparently this was done on behalf of the owners while the station was under an LMA.  A discussion on this subject can be found here.  The permit expired or was rescinded in early 2013.
