History:
The station dates back to a construction permit issued in 2007.  The station's license to cover was issued on 27 October 2010.  Wow Community Broadcasting also operates WOWB, a Brewton-licensed non-comm that plays contemporary Christian music.  The station aired all Christmas music with no interruptions from November 18, 2010 until sometime after Christmas, when it switched to religious music and teaching format as the flagship station of "The Life FM".  The network is currently being built out to include 10 stations in total.  In mid October, 2012, the station received a permit to boost power from 65 kW to 87 kW, with no other changes, which yeilded slight coverage improvements in Atmore and Andalusia when it went online a few months later.
