- This station dates back
to an original construction permit for a new station issued to
Florence Broadcasting Company, for a 250 watt daytime only outlet on
1010 kHz. It signed on in March of 1956 with studios and
transmitter on what was then called Cravens Landing Road. Today,
it's surrounded by the Woodland Heights subdivision.
The station was bought by Savannah Broadcasting Service in July of
The format of the station prior to the 80's isn't known, but it was
country from at least '82 onwards, and simulcast for most of the day
on sister WORM-FM.
Gerald W. Hunt bought the station in 1984. The station
transitioned to a gold-based oldies format in the early 90's, while
the FM took the country music.
