History:
The WKNG-FM calls were assigned in March of 2005 to Covenant Communications, which is a noncommercial offshoot of the Graddick family, which owns commercial stations WKNG, WLBB and WCKS in Carrollton, Georgia.   Originally covering Heflin with just 250 watts of power, it had a construction permit for 1,000 watts vertical ERP with a move to a higher site right in the heart of Anniston. That permit expired in April, 2009.  In May 2015 the station was granted a power increase to 1,000 watts from the site transmitter site in the middle of nowhere, and put that facility on the air in October of 2015.
