WJTP is an AM radio station broadcasting on a frequency of 890 kHz with 5,000 watts of power during daytime hours only. The station is licensed to Lithia Springs, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Its signal is transmitted from a facility closer to the city of Atlanta, Georgia as it shares the broadcast towers of WAOK AM 1380 near the western interchange of Interstate 20 and Interstate 285. The station is currently owned by National Broadcasting, Inc.
The station went on the air as WSSW AM on 1000 kHz on April 1, 2002 with Walhalla, South Carolina as its city of license. On April 18, 2002, the station changed its call sign to WSMW, on September 25, 2003 to WWOF, and on October 10, 2008 to the current WJTP.
On June 26, 2008, Tugart Properties, LLC sold WWOF to New Life Broadcasting and was cleared to move into the Atlanta market area on its new frequency 890 kHz. The station began broadcasting from its new facility in Lithia Springs, Georgia on January 25, 2009.
In January 2011, the station started transmitting China News program, a China Radio International-produced general news and entertainment program in English and Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese) distributed by AIM Broadcasting (American International Media) in Palo Alto, California, targeting Chinese-Americans in the Atlanta area. China Radio International also airs over KGBC 1540 AM in the Houston, Texas area.
On June 30, 2012, the station's license was transferred from New Life Broadcasting to National Broadcasting, Inc. The two companies share common ownership. In October 2013, WJTP was sold to James Su's Major Radio, LLC for $2.1 million. The sale was consummated on December 23, 2013.
