History

WATY signed on the air in 2000.[2] It was owned by Okefenokee Educational Foundation, Inc.[3] WATY aired informational and educational programming, along with adult standards music.

In the mid-2010s, WATY was sold to The Foundation For Public Broadcasting In Georgia.[4] It began carrying the news and information programming of Georgia Public Radio as a network affiliate of NPR, with some classical music heard late nights and weekends.

Effective August 31, 2015, WATY was sold to Delmarva Educational Association, at a purchase price of $45,000. Delmarva made it one station in a trimulcast, helping cover the northern suburbs of the Jacksonville metropolitan area, airing Christian talk and teaching programs.
