The damage to WGPC(AM)�s tower appears to have been done Jan. 2, but this was not the first time that the station has had Mother Nature wreak havoc on it. In 1940, a tornado took out the original tower, which was erected after the station was granted a license in 1933.�

WGPC is currently formatted as a sports station and owned by Cumulus Media. It had broadcast on 1450 MHz.
