WEBF (88.3 FM) is a K-LOVE-affiliated radio station in Lerose, Kentucky, USA. The station is owned by Board of Regents of Morehead State University and features programming from American Public Media and Public Radio International.[1] The station is also broadcast on HD radio.[2]

In 2006, Governor Ernie Fletcher honored the station with the Arts Broadcasting Award.[citation needed].

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WSPE on 8 January 1999, owned by the Owsley County Schools with studios at Owsley County High School. On 31 July 2001, the station changed its call sign to WOCS and on 23 March 2011, changed again to the current WEBF.[3]

From 2001 to 2011, then-WOCS served as a repeater for Morehead State University's NPR station, WMKY. However, in 2011, Owsley County Schools sold the station to Hour of Harvest, who then leased the station to K-LOVE.
