History:
WAVU came on the air around 1948 by the Sand Mountain Broadcasting Company and has always had the same calls.  In the spring of 2010 it got an FM translator, W296BZ licensed to Blue Mountain.  The translator eventually led the branding effort, with the station being known as "Power 107.5".  Some announcers on this station come from sister country station WQSB.  In February 2018 the station was granted a permit to construct a new translator on 92.5 MHz from a site atop "Mount Sinai" near Steele.
