History:
Signed on the air March 1, 1977, with 50,000 watts of power at 90.1 on the dial. Switched to present 89.9 MHz frequency and 100 kW of power in 1980. WTSU added the first of two satellite stations in 1984 (WTJB 91.7 in Columbus). Next year they added WRWA in Dothan. The stations were collectively known as Southeastern Public Radio until sometime in late 2009 or early 2010.
