History

Pre-broadcast and launch

William Carlton Link and Thurman Louis Hardgrove, Sr both applied for a new FM station for Lawrenceville, Virginia, in early 1988[7] Link already owned an AM station, WLES, in Lawrenceville[8] The Federal Communications Commission FCC held a hearing regarding the matter on January 14, 1988[7] More than two months later, on March 31, Link's application was approved, with the station to broadcast at 989 MHz[9] During the week of April 20, 1989, the FCC assigned the new station the WLES-FM call sign[3] The station launched on September 1, 1991, airing country and bluegrass music[10] During the week of November 30, the station call sign changed to WHFD[11]

History since launch

On November 12, 1992, the FCC announced that WHFD would move from 989 to 1055, where it remains[12] The move took place on January 15, 1993[12] The station added gospel music to its format in 1995[13]

Norfolk, Virginia-based Willis Broadcasting Corporation bought WHFD and sister station WLES from Link on March 22, 1999 for $350,000[14] Almost a year later, on January 10, 2000, sister-station WLES was sold to Chesapeake-Portsmouth Broadcasting Corporation for $150,000[15] In 2001, WHFD switched from a hybrid country/bluegrass/gospel music format to solely gospel[16]

WHFD and South Boston-based WHLF-AM were to be sold to J&J Broadcasting Inc for $250,000 on November 11, 2002,[17] but for unknown reasons the sale did not take place[18] Station general manager Katrina Chase purchased WHFD, under the company name Lawrenceville Christian, for $100,000 on April 10, 2005[19]

On February 9, 2011, WHFD was placed into receivership due to a $200,000 debt owned to a Woodstock, Virginia-based law firm[20][21] The station fell silent on March 9, 2011,[22] returning to the air in early 2012[23] Todd Fowler of Fowler Media Consulting, LLC took over operations of the station on March 30, 2011[20] On July 18, 2011, the station's call sign was changed from WHFD to WHLQ[4] WHLQ was sold by Fowler to Jimmy Johnson of North Carolina on May 16, 2012 for $75,000[24][25] The sale closed on November 7, 2012[26]

Once again, on April 14, 2014, the station was up for sale, this time to Lawrenceville resident Jeff Davis,[27] who, under the company name Imperial Broadcasting Company, LLC, purchased WHLQ from Johnson for $199,000[28]

Johnson, while still owner of WHLQ, filed to raise the station's transmitting tower height from 47 meters to 100 meters on May 9, 2014[29] The station's tower will remain in the same location and the wattage will remain the same as well[29] On July 7, 2014, the station's call sign was again changed, from WHLQ to WVNC[4]

Logo used from September 22, 2014 until early January 2015

The sale from Johnson to Davis closed on July 14, 2014[30] Four days later, WVNC fell silent to make "changes equipment and programming"[31] A month previously, on May 20, a post on the station's new Facebook page alerted listeners that the station would take a new format of Conservative News/Talk programs[32]

Davis said, in an interview on August 5 with the Brunswick Times-Gazette, that he hoped to have the station on the air "by the second week of August"[33] He also said "a morning show featuring local guests" will be featured[33]

WVNC returned to the air on August 19, 2014[34] The station, however, returned with a music format due to technical problems with the station's satellite dish[35] The news/talk format was delayed until the satellite dish was repaired[35] On September 22, 2014, the station debuted its Conservative News/Talk format The station began streaming its programming online at December 16, 2014, but stopped four days later[36]

On December 20, 2014, the station began airing Christmas music[37] Owner Jeff Davis began the process of selling the station back to previous owner Jimmy Johnson, on January 6, 2014[38] Johnson will operate the station, under the Brunswick County Broadcasting, Inc, with two other persons, John Trent and Terry Suggs[38] Trent's law firm filed suit against the station's previous owners in 2011[20][21]

The sale represents a cancellation of debt, in the amount of $179,100, still owned by Davis to Johnson[39] As part of the agreement, the station's callsign will change back to WHLQ[39] The two companies also entered into a time brokerage agreement, allowing Brunswick to begin operating the station[40] The agreement went into effect on January 1, 2015[40] On January 13, 2015, the station's callsign changed to WHLQ[4] The sale of WHLQ was closed on April 9, 2015[41]

A little under seven months later, on October 27, 2015, Brunswick County Broadcasting, Inc began the process to sell WHLQ[6] The buyer, this time around, was Chesapeake-based Ronnie D Joyner Ministries, Inc[6] The station was sold for $149000, and the translation was consummated on January 6, 2016[42] At this time, translator station W236AD is not included in the sale[6][42]
