WJTP is an AM radio station broadcasting on a frequency of 890 kHz with 5,000 watts of power during daytime hours only. The station is licensed to Lithia Springs, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Its signal is transmitted from a facility closer to the city of Atlanta, Georgia as it shares the broadcast towers of WAOK AM 1380 near the western interchange of Interstate 20 and Interstate 285. The station is currently owned by New Life Broadcasting and is in a testing phase with Spanish Christian music programming and station announcements.[1]

Because WJTP shares the same frequency as "clear channel" station WLS AM 890 in Chicago, Illinois, this station only broadcasts during the daytime hours.

History

The station went on the air as WSSW AM on 1000kHz on April 1, 2002 with Walhalla, South Carolina as its city of license. On April 18, 2002, the station changed its call sign to WSMW, on September 25, 2003 to WWOF, and on October 10, 2008 to the current WJTP.[2]

On June 26, 2008, Tugart Properties, LLC sold WWOF to New Life Broadcasting and was cleared to move into the Atlanta market area on its new frequency 890 kHz. The station began broadcasting from its new facility in Lithia Springs, Georgia on January 25, 2009.
