originated as a suburban class A in the early 70's with the WJQY
(Joy) calls and spent it's first two years in beautiful music.
Competed against 96.1, an already established station. Spent the
next two years as WJQY, Q Country, competing against 94.9 WKSJ with
no success. A new owner changed it to light rock WDLT in 1984.
Information contributer J Alex Bowab, who has provided many station
histories, owned this station between 1986-1992. At one time
in the early 90's, WDLT shared studio space with WZEW in the former
First National Bank building in downtown Mobile. Sale of the
station in 1992 led to a change to black adult contemporary with the
same call letters, and a studio move back to the transmitter site
off Wolf Ridge Road in southwest Mobile. WDLT later upgraded to
class C2 status with a tower site west of Mobile. The station serves
Mobile and Pascagoula and shows up in the ratings in both cities.
- As part
of a shakeup of Mobile stations, WABD moved to 97.5 on 14 July 2012,
while K-Love took over WDLT's slot at 98.3. WDLT's format
migrated to 104.1. This gives WDLT coverage of Pensacola as
well as Mobile and Pascagoula. In exchange for this station
and its smaller coverage area, EMF also picked up a full power
station in Nashville from Cumulus. After the changes, the
station received a permit to drop its slightly directional antenna
for a non-directional setup, improving coverage to the northeast and
