History:
WGIB (Where God Is Blessing) dates back to at least 1984, when it broadcast from atop Red Mountain with just a few hundred watts. Has always had the same calls and same owner, Glen Iris Baptist Church.
 
In January 2003 WGIB had a swap with Clear Channel's WDXB-FM and WQEM-FM.  WGIB's antenna was relocated from a site atop Red Mountain to Double Oak Mountain, near US 280, close to WLJR-FM's site. WDXB-FM moved from the Tuscaloosa Tall tower to WGIB's old site, and Clear Channel sold WQEM to Glen Iris Baptist for the trouble. WGIB's signal at 91.9 has increased height and power with a new directional antenna as well.
