105.1 was a class A station allocated to Century, Florida in the 80-90 docket. It came on the air as the FM companion of 1090 AM in Cantonment. Used WKGT calls and had a nostalgia format. The station upgraded to class C3 and moved the tower as close as it could to Pensacola, although it still fell short of putting an adequate signal into the urban area. The situation was aggravated by the FCC putting a C2 facility in Panama City on the same frequency, causing considerable interference in the area they were trying to target. The station was off the air for a good while, then back on with satellite fed adult contemporary music. In the station's most recent incarnation as WPFL, it seems to have settled on the idea of providing local service to Century, Flomaton, Atmore and the Brewton areas, although the calls hint at Pensacola.
