Core Radio Ministry
This station came on the air in either late July or early August 2004, during the first LPFM window.  The frequency was 104.5 MHz and the station transmitted from a site near the airport on Airport Road.  The format was originally Contemporary Christian music, and was known as "104 The Core", named for the ministry operating the station.  The station later began being relayed on a translator in the Auburn area.  At some point in more recent history, the station began relaying programming from Taking Back The Airwaves Ministries' "Revocation Radio" format, which is a youth-oriented Christian music format featuring rock, CHR and urban music.  The translator relaying the station is owned by a principal operator of TBTA, Ken Layton.  The station received a permit to relocate to a new transmitter site, change frequency from 104.5 to 97.3 and lower power in early February, 2016.  After those changes, they were granted another permit, this time to move west into Auburn, in April 2016.  A license to cover for that short move was filed about a month later.  In November 2017, the station received another permit, this time to move to a tower at the WGZZ studio off North Dead Road in Auburn.
