Christian broadcaster Moody Radio is expanding its Nashville footprint with a $414,000 purchase of WAMB (1200) and the Nashville-licensed translator W254CK at 98.7 from Great Southern Broadcasting. Both signals will carry programming originating from “Moody Radio” WFCM-FM (91.7) in the market.
The addition of the 1200 and 98.7 frequencies will allow the broadcaster to reach an additional half-million new listeners, increasing its coverage throughout the Nashville metro. After the FCC approved the purchase on June 9, Moody Bible Institute closed the deal and applied for new call letters, WFCN. The former home of classic country, the station is currently silent as Moody tweaks its signal.
“This is an historic moment for Moody Radio,” Collin Lambert, VP of Moody Radio, said in a release. “Our vision of being able to serve the entire Nashville area has come to fruition and we are grateful to the Lord.”
Moody also own Spanish religious WFCM (710) in the Nashville market.
