WITM (1330 AM) is an American broadcast radio station licensed to Marion, Virginia, serving Marion and Smyth County, Virginia. WITM is currently owned and operated by Praise and Glory Ministries.[2]

History[edit]

On November 7, 2007, WHGB flipped its calls to WITM and dropped its simulcast of sister station WHCB. Also during this time, WITM picked up a classic country and bluegrass music format.

Tower problems[edit]

On August 20, 2008, WITM fell silent because the "owner of the land adjacent to the station's temporary tower" asked the station "to remove a guy wire that was on his property". According to the station's Silent STA Application, WITM would "return to the air when the temporary antenna can be repositioned to comply with its current STA".[3]

Station donated[edit]

On August 17, 2009, WITM was donated to Praise and Glory Ministries based in Knoxville, Tennessee.[4][5] The station, while transferred, remained under the Silent STA Application filed by previous owners Appalachian Educational Communications Corporation, which was extended on July 6, 2009 as it was "determined that the operation of WITM [was] a burden on the Non-Profit Appalachian Educational Communications Corporation".[6] According to a filing with the FCC, the station resumed broadcasting on June 12, 2010.
