The 1000-watt station covers much of the Mid-Ohio Valley, which includes parts of Southeastern Ohio and Northwestern West Virginia around the cities of Marietta and Parkersburg, West Virginia.----
WMOA began broadcasting as an experimental station in September 1946 from a garage in
Williamstown, West Virginia, across the Ohio Riverfrom Marietta. The station, upon receiving an FCClicense, relocated its broadcast studios to the basement of the historic Lafayette Hotelin downtown Marietta. The studios relocated again to the Citizen's Bank Building during the latter part of the 20th century before settling at their current location on Lancaster Street in Marietta.
The station currently advertises itself as "Full Service Radio," and features a variety of generally local interest broadcasting. The station is currently affiliated with
ABC Radiofor national news updates, and broadcasts live sporting events for nearby Marietta College. Besides ABC News updates twice hourly, the station features local on-air talent and music for the bulk of their broadcast day, with some syndicated programming airing during the morning drive-time period, notably including the Paul Harveynewscast. The station primarily provides coverage of the Cincinnati Redsand Ohio State University football, but also airs Cleveland Cavaliers, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians, Ohio University Bobcats football, and local high school sports broadcasts.
