Station History

93.5fm signed on April 2, 1994. The call letters stand for "J. Porter Smith" (the man who helped put the station on the air). WJPS-FM flipped formats from oldies to country on February 4, 2005.

WNTC-FM

WNTC signed on in April 1994, as one of the first (if not the first) 1970's-1980's music format in the USA. Owned by Michelle Elaine Hulse, a mathematics teacher from nearby Newburgh, she was extremely involved in the station, doing everything from the morning news to the Saturday night oldies show. Hulse also handled all of the financial details of the station.

WJPS-FM

In 1995, WJPS-FM was about to lose their lease agreement with 106.9fm. South Central Communications Corp. approached Hulse about the frequency and purchased it from her. They took over December 16, 1995. Studios at 1162 Mt. Auburn Road, Evansville, IN 47720-5479. Oldies format.

WLFW-FM

WLFW flipped formats to country on February 4, 2005. The call letters changed to WLFW which were approved by the FCC in its March 24, 2005 report. In May 2014, South Central Communications Corp. sold all of their radio stations, including WLFW, for $72 million to Midwest Communications, Inc.
