1490 WLOE, Leaksville, signed on the air December 20, 1946. The call letters were chosen for “Wonderful Land Of Eden.” It’s what William Byrd called the area when he surveyed it in 1728. The City of Eden was later born on September 13, 1967 with the merger of Leaksville, Spray and Draper.
1420 WMYN, Mayodan, began broadcasting July 15, 1957. Advertisers were told the call letters stood for “We Make Your Name.”
The two stations joined together in the summer of 1990, becoming the first AM stations in the state to share programming.
Veteran North Carolina broadcaster Mike Moore, who started in radio in 1960 at age 12, has been with the stations since 1972.
