- 105.1 was a
class A station allocated to Century, Florida in the 80-90 docket.
It came on the air as the FM companion of 1090 AM in Cantonment.
Used WKGT calls and had a nostalgia format. The station upgraded to
class C3 and moved the tower as close as it could to Pensacola,
although it still fell short of putting an adequate signal into the
urban area. The situation was aggravated by the FCC putting a C2
facility in Panama City on the same frequency, causing considerable
interference in the area they were trying to target. The station was
off the air for a good while, then back on with satellite fed adult
contemporary music. In the station's most recent incarnation as
WPFL, it seems to have settled on the idea of providing local
service to Century, Flomaton, Atmore and the Brewton areas, although
the calls hint at Pensacola. In the summer of 2008 the station
dropped ABC's Real Oldies for ABC's Real Country satellite format,
then moved to a classic country format as "Country Legends".
this station's signal is mostly outside that covered by the Gulf
Coast listings, it puts enough of a secondary signal into parts of
Escambia County, Florida and Baldwin County, Alabama, that it will
remain in the listings. Although it primarily serves Escambia
County, Alabama, now, the station is still licensed to
