- WULA Eufaula
came on the air in 1948 with 250 watts. It was co-owned by Edward
Fussell and R Hoffman.
- It has
been reported in 2011 that the station is silent. The Tom
Taylor on Radio-Info newsletter reported in June 2011 that the
station was being transferred between Big Fish Broadcasting and
Sounds Ideas LLC, both owned by Stanley Griffin, to avoid
forclosure. In September 2011 the calls changed from the
original WULA ones to WNRA. The sale went through in December
2011. Another silent STA was filed in 2012 citing transmitter
issues. In the interim, the station picked up sports talk with
ESPN. The station struggled off and on until April of 2016,
when it was resurrected with the original WULA calls, taking on a
gospel/Christian format (along with NASCAR and Alabama football)
with "The Harbor" name. The station went silent in late August
2016, when they lost their time broker.
Despite being silent, the station won a construction permit for a
new FM translator in May 2018, on 96.5 MHz. The station filed
multiple Silent STA requests since then.
station, along with sister station WYDK, was sold by Sound Ideas LLC
to Jeff Kierce's JDK Radio for $150,000. JDK turned the
license in to the FCC in mid-September 2019.
