Early years

For much of its existence, WAVL was a conservative Christian radio station, broadcasting inspirational music and time-brokered sermons from its studios located with its transmitter site in the Kiskiminetas Township village of Orchard Hills, just on the outskirts of Apollo, its city of license. WAVL was also the very first radio station in Armstrong County, with WACB (now WTYM) coming on the air the following year. WTYM is a commercially-licensed AM radio station broadcasting at 1380 khz with a maximum power output of 1,000 watts, non-directional. ...


WAVL was founded by Reverend Cecil F. Clifton, a deeply patriotic minister who started the station on the principle of "serving God and Country by guarding America's spiritual heritage". The station remained in Clifton's family for more than 50 years, doing business as Tri-Borough Broadcasting (referring to Apollo, Vandergrift, and Leechburg, which was also the origins of the station call letters). Lycian Apollo, early Imperial Roman copy of a fourth century Greek original (Louvre Museum) In Greek and Roman mythology, Apollo (Ancient Greek , Apóllōn; or , Apellōn), the ideal of the kouros, was the archer-god of medicine and healing, light, truth, archery and also a bringer of death...

The station also broadcast local news in between the time-brokered programs for many years, anchored by the soft-spoken, deep-baritoned genial Carman Tubby, who was a favorite in the community for many years until his death in the mid-90's, often addressing his listeners on the air as "friends".


After Reverend Clifton's death in 1990, the station passed to his wife Alice. Their son-in-law, Reverend Robert Dain, had served as the station's General Manager years before that. At the beginning of the 21st century, following Mrs. Clifton's death, WAVL was put up for sale.


WAVL was purchased in 2001 for $400,000 by Evangel Heights Assembly of God, a church in Sarver, located at Routes 356 and 28 in southern Butler County. Wishing to move WAVL towards a younger audience, Evangel Heights decided to change the station's format to contemporary christian, gradually phasing out the ministries.


WAVL Today

WAVL moved from its longtime location on Radio Station Road in Orchard Hills in 2004, co-locating the studios with the church in Sarver. The station continues to transmit from Orchard Hills.


WAVL has applied to switch frequencies with WPTT-AM, and is expected to be at 1360 AM sometime in the future. WPTT (1360) is a talk radio station that serves the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania market. ...
