History:
Came on the air in 1949 with the WJBB calls, owned by W. P. Thielens.  In the 50's was affiliated with both Mutual and Keystone networks, and ran 250 watts. Spawned WJBB-FM.  As of the fall of 2011 the station has been sold and the calls are scheduled to change to WWWH after the sale completes from Hayleyville Broadcasting to AMS Radio, LLC.  The sale went through and the calls changed in December 2011.  Around the time the sale went through it was revealed that the station would be dropping the gospel format for news/talk as "The Light".  At the first of the year (2012) they flipped the AM to news/talk with some simulcasting of the FM sister station.   The AM station has been reported silent through some of 2012, and last heard active in September 2012. On 24 August 2015, the station surrendered its license to the FCC.
