NotesEdit

  • WPTF-FM originally simulcasted the AM station until they became mostly classical in the late 1960s and early 1970s. WPTF-FM simulcasted the AM station part-time until the FM station switched to rock music on December 26, 1972 and changed calls to WQDR. WQDR currently airs a country music format.
  • WPTF radio was the sister of WPTF-TV from 1977 (when they changed their calls from WRDU-TV) until 1991 (when they changed their calls to the current WRDC)
  • WPTF, along with WBT in Charlotte, North Carolina, are the two most powerful AM radio stations in North Carolina.
