WFUL (1270 AM) was a radio station broadcasting a Country music format. Formerly licensed to Fulton, Kentucky, USA, the station was owned by River County Broadcasting, Inc.[2]

History[edit]

Although the station originally carried the call sign WFUL, the call sign was changed on March 17, 1988, to WKZT in honor of longtime Fulton, Kentucky resident Kenneth Z. Turner who had recently died. On July 5, 2004, the station changed its call sign back to WFUL.[3]

On March 28, 2012, the station's license was cancelled and its callsign deleted from the Federal Communications Commission's database, per the licensee's request.[4]
