Silent
Owner:
Sound Ideas LLC
History:
Signed on July 1992 as WDMT with an unknown format.  Calls changed to WRVX in March 2001.
 
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 August 2011 the calls changed from WRDX to WYDK.  The sale went through the FCC in December 2011.  The station is presumably on the air as of February 2012, with an oldies format as "Dock 97.9".  Sound Ideas has entered into a purchase agreement in 2016 to Daystar Media Group.  In April 2016, the station changed from oldies "97.9 The Dock" to "Mix 98" with a variety of hits from the 60's through the 80's.  There is also gospel/Christian programming on Sundays.  The station returned to broadcasting in stereo in April 2016 as well, although by early September, the station was silent again due to the loss of the time brokerage agreement in place.
