Imani Communications Corp.
History:
Signed on in 2001 with a hip hop, R&B and gospel mix targeting the Selma/West Alabama area.  Due to failing to file a renewal on time, the FCC deleted the license in April 2012.  The station went off the air shortly afterward, but only stayed off for a few days before returning to the airwaves.  The station picked up affiliation for the Texas A&M football team at the start of the 2012 season, coinciding with their joining the SEC.  The license was officially reinstated at the end of November 2012.
