- This station
traces its origin back to 1955 as 990 AM in Flomaton, Alabama, with
the calls WTCB (for Tri-City Broadcasting, eventually it came to
mean Takin' Care of Business). Later the calls were WPIK, and at
some point they moved to 1090 kHz, with a power increase to 5 kW.
This likely happened while still in Flomaton, They also used
the WRBK calls at one time, as well. The station moved from
Flomaton to Century, Florida, just across the state line, where they
picked up a nostalgia format. Around that time they put an FM
on at 105.1 MHz, as a simulcast. The AM and FM may have also
given way to all talk for a short time. The AM also eventually
migrated further south, to the Pensacola suburb of Cantonment.
- At one point in
the late 90's the station was silent. The FCC shows the
station had the WJBW calls from August 1991 to April 1993, when they
changed to WKGT. The FM was WKGT-FM at the same time.
That only lasted until the end of January 1994, when the station
took the WNVY calls from 1230 AM. The stataion moved from 1090
to 1070 in late 2007, increasing daytime power to 15kW and starting
a nighttime service with 28 watts. When WASG was brought from
Atmore to Pensacola, it was co-located with WNVY. It later
moved to Mobile.
The station was awarded a permit for an FM translator companion in
January 2018, and it signed on from Pensacola in December 2018.
