AM History Profile: WTCG
WTCG signed on in 1984
as Andalusia's third AM station. Put on the air by Bill Hoisington, it
had a MOR (middle of the road) format. The station went off the air
in 1988, and was bought out. It came on the air a few months later in C-QUAM
stereo with the Stardust satellite music format. It was sold again in 1991,
and later became a news/talk station. It went dark again shortly thereafter.
It came back on the air again with another new owner, this time with a
R&B/jazz type format. It went dark (yet again) a short time later.
As a side note, WTCG used to be the calls of channel 17 in Atlanta, now
known 'round the country as WTBS.
