WWLB (93.1 FM, "Hank FM") is a classic country music formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Ettrick, Virginia, serving the Petersburg/Richmond area. WWLB is owned and operated by Alpha Media.[1]

History[edit]

On October 20, 2014, WLFV changed their format from country (as "The Wolf", which moved to sister station WWLB 98.9 FM) to classic country, branded as "93.1 Hank FM".[2] The following day, the FCC authorized a swap of callsigns between the stations at 93.1 FM (now WWLB) and 98.9 FM (now WLFV).
