WAPF (1140 AM) is a Sports formatted broadcast radio station licensed to McComb, Mississippi, serving McComb and Pike County, Mississippi. The station is owned and operated by Charles W. Dowdy, debtor-in-possession, following the September 2011 bankruptcy filing by Southwest Broadcasting, Inc.

On September 21, 2011, Charles W. Dowdy, acting as the sole owner of license holder Southwest Broadcasting, Inc., dissolved the corporation and assigned the broadcast licenses it held (WAPF plus sister stations WAKH, WAKK, WAZA, WFCG, WJSH, WKJN, and WTGG) to himself acting as debtor in possession before initiating a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.[1] The FCC approved the license transfer on December 19, 2011.[2]
