History Of WWAK
Thanks to Marc Tyll for this history of WWAK.
WWAK was only a Construction Permit, having never begun broadcast operations. The original owners had planned to bring Hawthorne (located approximately 20 miles East of Gainesville) its first radio station in 1985, broadcasting a variety of Bluegrass and Mainstream country music. The frequency was 1450 kHz and was authorized to operate with 1,000 watts non directional day and 250 watts non directional at night. The call letters WWAK origin came from the slogan "We Weally Appreciate Kountry" which was to be the on-air signature at AM 1450.
