I believe the station was sold and as of today is talk radio. Data being processed by FCC, don't know the future of the station.

The station is now owned by Mountain Community Radio with transaction and license assignment completed on Dec.3, 2012.
The above FCC document provides details.
There are details on station programming format. Apparently it is for time being going to be talk radio.
Hope this info helps.

MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY RADIO, LLC is selling Country WACF/YOUNG HARRIS, GA to JEFFREY T. BATTEN's WJUL RADIO, LLC for $270,000.

Sounds like they have one token hillbilly and a bunch of Floridans on the air.
Then it goes to all Fox news and crap talk.

My favorite station is WCON out of Cornelia. Live Dj's 24/7 365 days . Rare station theses days.
WCON also brocasts online.

The station is now owned by Jeff Batten of Batten Communications, who owns WJUL 1230 AM / 97.5 FM in Hiawassee. Batten Communications announced a while back that they were buying the station and would have the same talk radio format as WJUL.

Good post-
They had a guy on the Young Harris station last time who thought he was so funny. Toothpick?
Played weird music and hip hop crap.
Theses folks don't know their audience.

They think we locals are all stupid. And are here to save us with chamber of commerce events.....

and I bet the DJ's don't have fans in their bathrooms.

Chewing tobacco and listening to Rush Limbald don't go together. Give me some George Jones, Merle Haggard and Willie any day of the week instead of YACK, YACK, YACK.

I like Merle and Willie too and you can hear them on all the other local stations but you couldn't hear Rush or Huckabe and all the others until now. I hope it makes it.

Thought I would hear some REAL country music and instead hear some female, Nancy Grace wanna-be whining. about the election. She couldn't form a complete sentence without sputtering and carryinG on. fyi: THE ELECTION IS OVER YOU LOST, GET OVER IT OR MOVE TO IRAQ.

I though,~bleh~ and turned it off.

Later that day I went back to the station and heard some over zealous right wing idiot spouting garbage.

That push button on my radio has been changed to 97.1.

Attn: advertisers your wasting money with that station.... because we aren't buying what they are selling or what you are either.
Maybe

I agree!
Maybe what we are seeing is a guy who owns a broadcasting school and radio stations? Maybe a biz model where he places graduates in DJ slots?
