WMPM is an AM station in Smithfield, North Carolina broadcasting at 1270. The station is heavily focused on Johnston County and originally had a traditional country format, with an occasional gospel song thrown in every now and then.

WMPM is owned by broadcaster Carl Lamm, who has held onto the station for nearly a half-century and continues to host a weekday afternoon show on sister station WTSB to this day.[1] In addition, Carl is a member of the North Carolina Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

On November 1, 2007, the programming heard on 1270 will move down the dial to WTSB-AM 1090, another Johnston County station, which previously had an all-sports format. [2]

Since2009, WMPM has been broadcasting contemporary Christian music, and billing itself as "the new 1270 WMPM, Johnston County's Christian Radio.".
