History:
This station filed a license to cover on 18 April 2011, with an unknown format.  The owner, Centro Comunitario Juvenil Mahanaim, Inc. (Youth Community Center Mahanaim, Inc.), also has a station in Wilson, Louisiana, WJVI-FM.  The station was first confirmed on the air on 9 December 2011, with a Spanish language formats being relayed from KRYN in Gresham, Oregon and KVAN in Kennewick, Washington.  The Spanish language content was short lived as the station was reported off air again shortly thereafter due to tornado damage.  In March 2013 the license was transferred to Divine Word Communications, who operate Catholic-oriented religious stations along the Gulf Coast.  They brought the station back on air with EWTN Radio affiliation.  The stations are expected to continue offering English-language Catholic programming, including shows hosted by EWTN.  The license was finally transferred just after Christmas of 2015.
