History[edit]

The first FCC license renewal online shows that in 1982 WLTN was licensed to Profile Broadcasting Company.[2] The station featured a News/Talk format throughout the 1990s and early 2000s until Sharp Broadcasting (who had acquired the station in 1999 from Profile)[3] transferred control (via local marketing agreement)[4] to Barry Lunderville and changed formats to oldies.[5] In June 2005 the license was transferred to Lunderville.[6]

Translators[edit]

In addition to the main station, WLTN is relayed by an FM translator.
