WLVF History
The history of  WLVF begins as WHAN-AM 930.  In January of 1971, Pastor Mickey Carter began to broadcast a Bible question and answer time for fifteen minutes each Sunday morning on oldies station WTHN-AM 930.  In 1973 Pastor Carter began broadcasting the morning worship service of the Landmark Baptist Church. In 1997 Landmark Baptist Church purchased the old Polk Hotel (earlier known as the Palm Crest Hotel original home of WGTO-AM 540).
