WRNA (1140 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Southern Gospel format. Licensed to China Grove, North Carolina, USA, it serves the Rowan and Cabarrus county areas. From 1985 to 1987 the station broadcast a local, 15-minute program called "Gospel Light Teen Time" each Sunday from 5:15 to 5:30. The station is currently owned by South Rowan Broadcasting.


Carl Ford's first job was at WRKB in Kannapolis, which was owned by Bill Hefner at the time. Now Ford and his wife Angela own Ford Broadcasting, which owns WRKB and WRNA. The two stations air the same programming, and Carl Ford hosts a morning show on both stations.[1]
