WRTG

WRTG (1000 AM) is a radio station licensed to serve the community of Garner, North Carolina. It airs a Spanish language format as part of the Que Pasa Radio network.

History

WRTG hit the local airwaves in 1969 as country station WKBQ. In 1987, the station became classic country WHEV under the ownership of Henry E. Veil. After going dark in the early 1990s, Veil gave the license to Durham-based Carolina Christian Communications, which signed 1000 AM back on the air in 1994 with a simulcast of contemporary Christian station WRTP, 1530 AM. A third AM signal, WGSB (1060 AM in Mebane, North Carolina) joined the simulcast in 1995. The stations were then known as "His Radio WRTP" and owned by Radio Training Network along with WRTP-FM in Roanoke Rapids and several FM translators across the Triangle and Eastern North Carolina.

In October 2004, WRTG, along with WRTP and WGSB were purchased by Estuardo Valdemar Rodriguez and Leonor Rodriguez, owners of WLLN in Lillington, North Carolina, for $1.1 million. On February 3, 2005, WRTP and its sister AM stations ceased broadcasting the "His Radio WRTP" Christian format. After a day off the air, the three stations resumed broadcasting a Spanish-language format on February 4, 2005. The stations carry the regional Mexican format formerly heard on WFTK, while WTIK airs "Que Pasa Mixx", a contemporary Latin format.
