WRTP (88.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Christian contemporary format. Licensed to Franklinton, North Carolina, USA, it serves the Rocky Mount-Wilson area. The station is currently owned by Radio Training Network.
After Carolina Christian Communications sold WRTP-AM and simulcast stations WRTG and WGSB to Radio Training Network, that company bought WHGG-FM 90.1 FM in Roanoke Rapids, which was licensed to a school, and changed its name to WRTP-FM. The first translator, W216BN at 91.1 in Raleigh, signed on in 1999, giving the stations a nighttime signal in that area. W216BN moved from north Raleigh to the WSHA tower to prevent interference to WUNC-FM. Another translator was W257BH at 99.3 FM in Lizard Lick, serving eastern Wake County. In 2005, WRTP-FM moved to the 88.5 frequency, former home of WZRU. After WRTP-AM was sold to Que Pasa Radio, WRTP-FM continued to broadcast, having increased to 24 hours a day, on multiple FM frequencies throughout central and eastern North Carolina and on line at http://www.goodnews.org.
WRTP plans a city of license change to Franklinton, North Carolina.
In addition to the main station, WRTP is relayed by an additional 9 translators to widen its broadcast area.
