Programming

WEMM-FM broadcasts a Southern Gospel and Religious format to the Tri-State Region.[3] This format includes sermons from area pulpits, national Bible teaching ministries, and Southern Gospel music.[4][5] The station also airs a radio simulcast of the WSAZ NewsChannel 3 Six O'Clock newscast on weekdays.

History

WEMM was first established on September 6, 1971, and has since then maintained its current Gospel format.[4] The station signed on as the third station on the Tower of Faith Radio Network.[6]

Former logo

The call letters were changed to WEMM-FM on February 2, 2004,[2] when an AM sister station (then known as WHRD) was made a simulcast of the FM signal and its call sign was changed to WEMM.[7] That simulcast arrangement ended and the AM station's callsign was changed to WRWB in September 2008 but the FM station remains at the WEMM-FM callsign.[7]
