History

In January 1995, Christian radio station WHVN in Charlotte, North Carolina began airing its programming on this station [Tim Funk, "Cablevision Adds 2 New Channels," "The Charlotte Observer", January 17, 1995.] .

At one time, this station had the letters WAME and an adult standards format. Then-owners GHB Broadcasting switched the format to Sports Talk and changed the callsign to WQIS.

From 1922 to 1946, WEAF was the callsign of the radio station that became WNBC and the flagship station of the NBC Red network.cite news |work=Broadcasting & Cable |title=NBC History |date=2002-03-25 |first=Thomas D. |last=Bratter |url=http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA202619.html] This station is now known as WFAN (AM) in New York.cite news |work=NorthEast Radio Watch |title=A WILD Shift For Radio One/Boston |date=2005-10-24 |first=Scott |last=Fybush |url=http://www.fybush.com/NERW/2005/051024/nerw.html] In the mid-1970s, WEAF was the callsign of the current WGBT in Eden, North Carolina.
