History

In December 1958, the station signed on as WEZL The station was originally a daytimer, required to sign-off at sunset In 1964, it was purchased by Richard S Reynolds III and future Lieutenant Governor of Virginia J Sargeant Reynolds As WGOE, the station was first a top-40 outlet It later became locally famous for airing a progressive rock format, which was typically the domain of FM radio, during the 1970s[1][3]

In 1982, the station was bought by the Willis Broadcasting Corporation[5] Owner LE Willis, Sr, changed the call sign to WFTH to represent the word "faith" The format was switched to black gospel music and preaching shows

In May 2016, the station was leased to Stu-Comm, Inc, owner of non-commercial FM 919 WNRN in Charlottesville, Virginia WFTH was sold to Stu-Comm the next month[6] Stu-Comm's goal was to take advantage of the Federal Communications Commission's "AM revitalization" program, which allows owners of eligible AM stations to purchase and move in FM translators from up to 250 miles away A facility was brought in from Harrisville, West Virginia, which is now on the air as W203CB This translator replaces WNRN's previous signal in the area, W276BZ 1031 FM, which broadcast at just 10 watts and drew listener complaints due to its poor coverage of the city[7][8]

Translator

In addition to the main station, WFTH is relayed by one FM translator to widen its broadcast area[9]
