History:
WEYY-AM in Talladega put this station on the air in 1967 with the calls WANL. This was Clay County's first radio station. It was on 1540 originally before moving to its current dial position.  May have spawned WASZ (now WHMA) on 95.5 MHz.  Reported silent at the start of May 2010.  Station was reported back on air in March 2012 with a classic R&B format, but has often been noted to be silent or broadcasting a dead carrier since then.  The station may be airing a more contemporary format now, which could be heard online as "The Beat Jamz".  The station appears to have gone back off the air in either 2015 or 2016; the owners turned in the license in August 2016.
