History[edit]

In October 2007, Society of Pure Truth Ministries, Inc., applied to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station. The FCC granted this permit on January 8, 2009, with a scheduled expiration date of January 8, 2012.[1] The new station was assigned call sign "KMOA" on January 30, 2009.[2]

In March 2009, Society of Pure Truth Ministries sold the permit for KMOA to San Diego, California-based Horizon Christian Fellowship for the nominal amount of $10. The FCC approved the sale on May 7, 2009, and the transaction was consummated on May 21, 2009.[3] In August 2011, with construction nearly completed, Horizon Christian Fellowship sold the KMOA permit to Columbus, Georgia-based Teen Challenge International. The transfer gained FCC approval on October 12, 2011, and formal consummation of the deal occurred on October 13, 2011.[4]

After construction and testing were completed in early January 2012, the station was granted its broadcast license on January 20, 2012.[5]
