History[edit]

The station began broadcasting in 1982, and held the call sign WTLG.[1][2] It was owned by Starke Christian Education Radio & TV and aired a southern gospel format.[1][4] In 2008, the station was sold to American Family Association for $225,000, and it became an affiliate of American Family Radio.[5][6]
