- This station's
license to cover came around in early December 2012, but it dates
back to a construction permit issued back in July of 2008.
Benny Newton (the calls probably stood for Benny
had won the original construction permit, but wound up selling the
permit just before it expired to The Power Foundation for $1.
Newton had planned the station as "The Equality Broadcasting
Network", which he later put on an LPFM in Montgomery.
- Under The Power
Foundation's ownership, the station debuted with southern gospel
under the nickname "The Life FM". In late April 2014 the
station received a construction permit for a considerable power
increase from the original 750 watts at 180 feet HAAT. That
permit was built out and put on the air, with a license to cover
filed in early February 2015.
