WMIR "Rejoice 1200[1]" is a Urban Gospel radio station at 1200 AM licensed to Atlantic Beach, South Carolina and targeting a primarily African-American audience.

History[edit]

WMIR signed on in the late 1990s with a southern gospel format. After several years, the station changed its musical emphasis, with positive results.[citation needed]

Reggie Dyson, general manager of WMIR, said his station played a role in the 2002 BeachFest and planned live broadcasts from the June 2008 Beachfest, the third event of its type in the area.[1]
