History

WLBB Carrollton, Georgia moved to 1330 kHz, and the 1100 kHz signal moved to Hapeville, Georgia and changed calls to WWWE on August 30, 1996[1]. WWWE switched to the Spanish language religious "Radio Vida" format in April 2003[1]. The station was then re-branded as "La Poderosa 1100 AM"[2] until 2009. Most recently the station was branded as "Radio Fiesta Mexicana".

History of the WWWE Callsign

This station is of no relation to the current WTAM in Cleveland, Ohio, which held the WWWE callsign from 1972 until 1996 and broadcast on the same 1100 kHz frequency. Ironically, today's WWWE must sign off at night to avoid interference with WTAM, which is a clear channel station according to the Federal Communications Commission.

Broadcasting In The Hybrid Digital Mode

This station has the equipment for broadcasting in the IBOC digital radio mode, using the HD Radio system from iBiquity. Several other stations owned by the Beasley Broadcast Group use the HD Radio system. On October 13, 2005, WWWE submitted a notice to the Federal Communications Commission of their intention to start digital broadcasting[3]. The station started broadcasting using the HD Radio AM hybrid mode system in 2006 and into 2007 on a test basis, but has not continued using this system since this period.
