WVCF History
1991-New owners Juan Nreves and P. Solero of Apopka took control of the financially troubled station and began broadcasting Spanish-language Christian music from noon until the station's evening sign-off. WVCF which is Orlando's oldest Christian radio station, will continue to broadcast English-language programming from 6 a.m. to noon and to air roughly eight hours of Haitian programming on weekends. The station's new owners plan to upgrade the station's signal and work toward taking WVCF to a 24-hour broadcast, said general manager Wayne Burdick.
