WALC is a radio station located in Charleston, South Carolina. The station is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to broadcast with 13.5 kW on 100.5 FM. It is owned by the Radio Training Network and broadcasts a Contemporary Christian format under the name HIS Radio 100.5.
Programming includes music by such artists as MercyMe, Chasen, Newsboys, Chris Tomlin, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeremy Camp, Avalon, Toby Mac, and Mark Schultz, as well a few family ministries such as those of Dr. James Dobson and Charles Stanley. However, the station focuses primarily on music programming.
100.5 signed on as WSUY on April 4, 1990, adopting a light Adult Contemporary format as "Sunny 100.5". This lasted until late 1997 when the station shifted toward Modern AC as "Alice @ 100.5 under the WLLC call letters.
The station was purchased by Clear Channel Communications. It became WALC with the same format less than a year later. By 2001, the station had shifted toward more of a traditional Hot Adult Contemporary outlet.
In 2006, the station was placed in Clear Channel Communications' Aloha Station Trust, LLC of stations to be sold due to FCC regulations. On November 26, 2008, it was announced that the station had been sold to Radio Training Group, who operates religious stations. The company also operates WLFJ-FM in Greenville, South Carolina and WAFJ-FM in Augusta, Georgia. The station switched to a Contemporary Christian music format on January 26, 2009. The Alternative rock format previously heard on 100.5 is now heard on WRFQ's HD subchannel. Previously, His Radio was only able to be heard in the area on two translators, at 91.1 and 91.9 FM. These are now translators relaying WHRZ from Spartanburg, South Carolina.
