History:
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.
