WOAD (1300 AM) is a radio station licensed to Jackson with an urban gospel format. WOAD is owned by Alpha Media through licensee Alpha Media Licensee LLC. Along with five other sister stations, its studios are located in Ridgeland, a suburb of Jackson, while the transmitter tower is in the northside of Jackson.
The 1300kHz frequency was assigned the WRBC call letters for several years. Around 1978, the transmitter site was rebuilt and call letters were changed to WKXI-AM.
In March, 1996, the WOAD call letters and gospel format moved to the more powerful 1300 kHz, after swapping frequencies with then-sister station WKXI-AM.
On January 11, 2004, WOAD started simulcasting on FM—at 105.9.
July 2, 2009, WOAD dropped its FM simulcast and resumed AM-only broadcasting.
