History:
Greenville's WGYV came on the air in 1948 and in the late 50's was a Keystone network affiliate.  Before the talk & current religious/gospel format, the station ran oldies, at least up until the early 2000's.  In 2004 the station received a rare major modification construction permit to relocate to Aurora, Indiana on 1030 kHz.  That permit was either cancelled or expired, and the station received another major modification permit in 2008 for the same move.  That permit also never got built out and expired in 2011.  More recently, the format has been a mix of conservative talk on the weekdays and black gospel/preaching on weekends, but it appears that was replaced with classic hits as of late May 2016.
