- This station
dates back to an original construction permit issued to Earl and
Ruth Thompson's Okaloosa Public Radio, Inc. in 1986. The
station came on the air in the summer of 1988 as a Class C2 signal
with 5 kW from an antenna height of 253 feet HAAT, from the same
site they use today northwest of Baker. From the beginning,
it's had Religious programming. The calls stand for "We're
In May 1993, the station signed on a bigger signal after snagging an
upgrade to a Class C3 status. This upped the power to 20 kW
and the antenna height nudged up to 256 feet HAAT.
The station received another significant boost in coverage when they
secured a construction permit to boost power to 50 kW (and raise
antenna height to 416 feet) in 2002. The new, more powerful
signal finally signed on in the summer of 2005; with it came a
slightly directional antenna pattern to protect existing stations
elsewhere in the area.
It was announced in June 2019 that Okaloosa Public Radio sold the
station to Florala Broadcasting for $850,000. Florala owns
commercial AM stations WKWL in Florala and WGYV in Greenville,
Alabama. On 7 January 2020, the station began simulcasting on
WGYV. At some point later, it also began being simulcast on
WKWL in Florala.
