- Started off in
the mid-60's as a class A outlet with the WMFC calls on 99.3 MHz, as
a companion to the AM station. The calls stand for
Monroeville-Frisco City. Received the upgrade to its current class
with higher power in 1992. Has remained in the family of William
Stewart since the beginning. Stewart owned the Monroe
Journal and South Alabamian newspaper. After his death
in 1995, Wikipedia notes that his wife Carolyn took over ownership,
d/b/a Monroe County Broadcasting, with his son managing the AM/FM
combo. The AM shut down and turned in its license in 2010,
leaving the FM to go it alone. It appears to be using the Dial
Gold" satellite fed format. Carolyn Stewart died at the
age of 91 in May of 2014, and the station's ownership was
transferred to their son, David A. Stewart, who has been involved
with the radio station since the age of ten.
