Our Family

We started WCKF, LLC because we love radio, local towns, and people. There was an opening on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website, and we won the bid to start a new station. It took us three years to find a location and to discover what the people wanted to hear.

Les Gradick came up with the idea of starting a new station. Teresa Goodman, on the other hand, wanted to create a program that catered to a local market. Then, Alabama 100 was born, and we went on the air one midnight, playing Christmas music. We now play mostly country music with a touch of southern gospel. Since our start in 2011, we now cover 14 counties that hold more than a million people.
