WKGV (104.1 FM) is a Contemporary Christian radio station licensed to Swansboro, North Carolina. It is an affiliate of K-Love and is owned by Educational Media Foundation.

History[edit]

Jack Lee, manager of WFAI in Fayetteville, North Carolina from 1960 to 1971, was general manager of WZXS when it played adult standards.[2]

WWTB "Unforgettable Radio" signed off in January 2004 when new owner Sea-Comm announced the station would begin airing the same programming as WLTT "The Big Talker".[3]

In 2007, Educational Media Foundation agreed to buy WWTB from Sea-Comm for $900,000.[4] WWTB moved its frequency from 103.9 to 104.1, and its city of license from Topsail Beach to Swansboro.[5] The former WBNE became WNTB, taking over the WLTT simulcast.
