Station History

WCTW-FM

On March 9, 1949, they were granted a CP for 102.5fm, running 4000 watts at 250 feet. Not sure what happened between 1949 and the second (?) sign on in 1976.

WMDH-FM

102.5fm signed on August 6, 1976. In November 1998, Citadel Communications Corp. purchased WMDH-FM (and sister WMDH(AM) from Wicks Broadcasting Group as a part of a 16 station deal for $77 million. That sale included sister WWKI. Investment firm Forstmann Little & Co. purchased Citadel in January 2001 for $1 billion, plus debt. Citadel Communications Corp. merged with Cumulus Media, Inc. on September 16, 2011.
