WMNA-FM (106.3 FM) is a talk radio-formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Gretna, Virginia, serving Gretna, Chatham and Northern Pittsylvania County. WMNA-FM is owned and operated by 3 Daughters Media,[1] and simulcasts co-operated WIQO-FM in the Lynchburg area.

History[edit]

The station was once a country music station, before being bought by Gary Burns. The station became a simulcast of Lynchburg's WLNI to extend the signal along Route 29 from Danville to Nelson County. When Burns sold WLNI to Centennial Broadcasting, he split WMNA and sold it to Three Daughters Media. It became an ESPN Radio affiliate; in November 2013 it switched from sports to talk.[2]

Translator[edit]

In addition to the main station, WMNA-FM is relayed by an FM translator to widen its broadcast area.[3]
