- Has been WHEP
since it's inception in the 1953. Back then it was owned by "Alabama
Gulf Radio, Inc." and ran 1 kW days. It now enjoys more
daytime power and a small amount at night. The calls are the
initials of the original owner, Howard E. Pill. The station
picked up an FM translator sometime in late 2009 or early 2010,
which runs in mono. The station is still very much small town
in feel, with a local-oriented morning show, swap shop, a small
block of oldies in the midday, and some religious programming
interspersed through the day. At night, they switch to an
uninterrupted feed of TRN satellite based talk radio
programming. The morning show at one time was Ludlow Porch out
of Atlanta, but switched to a local program hosted by Kenny Graves
after Porch's death.
