WLOC 1150AM/101.7FM

Owned by Dewayne Forbis, the station once again offers both AM & FM broadcasting from its 1130 S. Dixie Street location in Horse Cave. Their new station – 101.7 FM – went live on June 15th, 2016. Dewayne began in radio while still in high school, and through the guidance and training of then station owner Jim Berry, Dewayne decided to make it his career. At the passing of Berry, the station went off the air for a few years, but in 1998 Dewayne, along with a group of investors, bought the station and moved it to Horse Cave. Unfortunately, the FM sector of WLOC was no longer available; therefore, they had to proceed as an AM station only. In 2003, Forbis and his late wife, Carol, assumed sole ownership of the station; they also began to explore additional ways to expand, not only their coverage, but services to listeners and purchased 99.1 FM. They sold that station last fall. Their new FM station features an early morning talk show from 6 a.m. – 8 a.m. called Studio 101 Live featuring Forbis, along with Chris Jessie and Lori Houchens. The new station also offers a mix of music including country, oldies, a gospel hour, and adult contemporary.
