History of WDMC
WDMC began as WMEG-AM 920. Divine Mercy Communications Inc purchased the license from David Ryder (Receiver) at the end of 2007. WDMC (Divine Mercy Communications) is scheduled to take to the air as a full-time EWTN Radio affiliate around March 20, 2008. The 5,000-watt station, which broadcasts at least 80 miles in every direction, plans to move to four towers, which will be built in Brevard County on the northern border of Indian River County.


On The Move   
In May 2015, WDMC moved to new facilities (studio, offices and chapel) to 2020 W. Eau Gallie Blvd. Suite 103. The new location is at the northeast corner of Croton and Eau Gallie Blvd. This location is home of Divine Mercy Radio operations.
