J. D. (Dige) Bishop put this station on the air in 1956.  It later spawned WJDB-FM.  Bishop owned several other stations and cable TV systems throughout south Alabama, including WCTA in Andalusia, his home base.  This station was reported silent in December 2011.  After failing to respond to FCC letters, the license was deleted on June 29th, 2017.
