- This station
signed on in early September 2003 with a country variety format,
including bluegrass and gospel music. In August 2007 the
station was silenced when lightning struck the tower and caused it
to collapse. They resumed operations from a temporary site
soon thereafter and was back to full power by the start of May,
2008. The station now broadcasts from a studio in
Heflin. In June 2015 the station was sold for $1 to Down The
Hill Communications, a non-profit religious organization (that,
oddly, lists itself as a “non-prophet
organization” in its FCC filing) based in Opelika, Alabama.
That sale was finally consummated in October 2015.
