History

Pre-launch

The history of WACL begins on October 15, 1983,[6] when Robert James Lacey applied for a construction permit to build a radio station licensed to Elkton, Virginia[6] The application asked that the station air on 983 FM and broadcast with a power of 3,000 watts[6] Lacey's application was returned on January 22, 1984, for undetermined reasons[7] On April 2, 1984, another company, Elkton Broadcasters, Inc filed their own construction permit, also requesting use of the 983 FM frequency and to operate at 3,000 watts[8] Elkton Broadcasters, Inc was operated by Pamela Joan Davis, her brother Fred W Greaves Jr, and their father, Fred W Greaves Sr[8]

On March 4, 1987, Administrative law judge Joseph B Gonzalez held oral argument an appeal to determine whether the approval of Lacey's application now operating as Stonewall Broadcasting Company and the rejection of Elkton's was proper[9] Stonewall Broadcasting Company retained the license, applying for the WVLC call sign in late-July 1987[3] On September 22, 1988, the Federal Communications Commission FCC amended the Table of allotments, moving the new station from 983 FM to 985 FM[10] The station's call sign was changed on February 22, 1989, to WPKZ[4][11]

Post-launch

On March 6, 1989, WPKZ began broadcasting for the first time, carrying an adult contemporary format known as "The Peak"[1][12] The Radio Futures Committee awarded WPKZ an "Honorable Mention" for Excellence in Creative Commercial Production on January 19, 1990[13] In late April 1990, M Belmont VerStandig agreed to "program and advertise" Stonewall Broadcasting Company-owned WPKZ for 10 years[14] By 1994, WPKZ had switched from an Adult Contemporary format to a Country format, as "Z-98"[15]

On March 7, 1997, the station's call sign changed from WPKZ to its current WACL[4] and switched from Country to an Oldies[16] and Classic Hits format, as "Cool 985", playing hits from the 1960s and 1970s[17] In early August 1997, Stonewall Broadcasting Company sold WACL to Mid-Atlantic Network, Inc for $175 million[18] WACL joined current sister stations WKCY and WKCY-FM[18] The deal was approved by the FCC on August 26, 1997, and the transaction became final on September 2, 1997[19]

In early January 2001, Mid-Atlantic Network, Inc sold WACL, along with sisters WKCY and WKCY-FM to Clear Channel Communications for $72 million[20] The deal was approved by the FCC on March 12, 2001, and the transaction closed on March 30, 2001[21] At midnight on May 2, 2001, WACL debuted its current Mainstream Rock format as "98 Rock; Harrisonburg's Rock Station"[22] WACL has since segued to a classic rock format competing with WWWV
