Lightning 100’s 2002


Previous Senior Account Executives Lesli Bills and Bob Dale both return to the station after being absent for several years.

Tuned In Broadcasting sells its rural FM frequencies 93.7 (WYYB/Kingston Springs – “The Phoenix”) and 94.1 (WRLG/Smyrna – currently as simulcast of Lightning 100) to Salem Broadcasting, a publicly-owned national Christian format. 

Tuned In Broadcasting sells its AM/FM combo 1590/94.3 (WDBL AM & FM/Springfield, TN) to publicly-owned Saga Communications. Saga would merge these stations into their multi-station Clarksville/Hopkinsville, KY cluster — leaving WRLT as Tuned In’s sole radio property.
