Pine City Radio
Signed on in March 2000 as WFOW with a classic country format, by Bennie Hewitt's Capital Assets. Calls changed to WBMH in March 2002.  Co-owned with WHOD in Jackson, and with that station, airs selected local high school sports.  Capital Assets sold this station, along with WHOD and WRJX, for $500,000 to Jason Kyzer's Kyzer Communications, in March 2017.

Kyzer took the all his area stations off the air in mid-November 2017, and filed bankruptcy soon thereafter.

In early Februrary 2018 it was announced that Thomas A. Butts' Pine City Radio would be acquiring the former Kyzer stations for $200,000, from the bankruptcy trustee Terrie S. Owens.  It is planned to return the stations to the air via LMA before the purchase is complete.  The station did appear to return to the air shortly after the announcement.
