WDVH-FM ("I Am Country 94.1 & 101.7") is a commercial radio station in Trenton, Florida, broadcasting to the Gainesville-Ocala, Florida area on 94.1 and 101.7 FM.

History[edit]

The 101.7 frequency was added to the FCC's table of allotments in 1985. The station first signed on the air as WCWB in March 1987 from a tower site approximately two miles west of Trenton, Florida. It broadcast an automated country music format from a single wide mobile home next to the transmitting tower. In April 1994, the call letters were changed to WDJY.

In late 2000, the station ownership changed from Pinnacle AM Broadcasting, Inc to Pamal Broadcasting along with sister station WLUS. In February 2004, WLUS's call letters were changed back to its heritage call letters, WDVH and WDJY's were changed to WDVH-FM. This began the simulcast of the Country Legends format from the WDVH studios on SE 27th street in Gainesville.

In October 2005, the studios were moved into the Sunshine Broadcasting building, located on 100 NW 76th street in Tower Hill Office Park, Gainesville.

On November 1, 2011, the station switched from a classic country format to contemporary Christian, branded as "Pulse 101.7" under new call letters, WPLL-FM.

On September 20, 2012, Pulse 101.7 moved up to 106.9 WKZY to create a Christian contemporary station. The station's call sign was changed back to WDVH-FM on October 24, 2012.

On April 15, 2013 WDVH-FM split from its simulcast with WPLL and changed their format to classic country, branded as "101.7 Hank FM".[1]

On May 1, 2016 sister station WDVH 980 AM flipped their format from news/talk to a simulcast of WDVH-FM.

On September 6, 2016 WDVH-FM added a simulcast of country music on 94.1 FM and rebranded as "I Am Country 94.1/101.7".[2]
