WKTO (88.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Christian format.Licensed to Edgewater, Florida, USA, the station serves the Daytona Beach area. The station is currently owned by Mims Community Radio, Inc.
WKTO made application to the FCC in 1989. It received a permit to construct and go on the air in 1997, and began broadcasting in 1998. In 1989, a Baptist church in Samsula had volunteered the use of some of its land for a tower. However, as time passed, church plans changed and a Christian businessman, Mr. Richard Crunkilton, offered his 20-acre (81,000 m2) ranch for WKTO's 300' tower, until selling the land in 2006. Responding to a newspaper article, Dr. Bill Sharp invited the station to put the studio and control room in the Christian Life Center, then on Tenth Street, in New Smyrna Beach. Pastor Sharp come to CLC in 1990 from a pastorate in Las Vegas, and knew the value of associating with electronic media. The relationship that WKTO has had with Christian Life Center, the Christian business community and the individuals who have become listeners have all contributed to fulfilling the motto for the station.
