Owned by Jack W. Ivy, Sr.
- This station came on
the air in the summer of 1968 by Redmont Broadcasting (Charles
Cashion, Jr, president) and hasn't changed much of anything
since. It mostly likely had a country format from the beginning,
and definitely had one by the mid-70's. The station went dark
for a period of time around 1997-1998 and when it came back on, it was
under new ownership — Jimmy R. Pyle — and with some southern gospel
sprinkled in with the country music. Pyle owned the station up
until 2001, when ownership passed to current owner Jack W. Ivy,
Sr. In March 2005 the station's license was not renewed in time
and the license was deleted. It was reinstated after a fine was
paid and the station was fully licensed again by January, 2007.
- In April 2016 the station
acquired a nearby translator from the Iuka area and has applied to
move it to 97.9 MHz to rebroadcast this station.
