History[edit]

In August 1984, Fritts Broadcasting, Inc., reached an agreement to sell this station to Shamrock Broadcasting, Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on October 9, 1984, and the transaction was consummated on October 15, 1984.[2]

In April 2007, Shamrock Broadcasting, Inc., contracted to sell this station and AM sister station WNLA to Debut Broadcasting Corporation, Inc.[3] The deal was approved by the FCC in May 2007 and the transaction consummated in June 2007.

On September 16, 2014 WNOU changed their format from urban contemporary to country, branded as "Delta Country 105.5". Delta Radio Network is the parent company of WNOU, not Debut Broadcasting, the previous owner.

Construction permit[edit]

In September, 2011, the then-WNLA-FM applied for an FCC construction permit to move to a new transmitter site, move to 105.7 MHz, increase the height above average terrain of its antenna to 163 meters and increase the effective radiated power of its broadcast signal to 25,000 watts.
