Family Stations, Inc.
Signed on in February 1989 and has always been a Family Radio affiliate.  The station received its first ever construction permit for an upgrade in July of 2016.  The antenna height was to be lowered but with a power increase and a horizontal component added.  Tower coordinates were also corrected, although it does not affect the Transmitter Location links on this page. That permit expired, unbuilt.
