WKKP broadcasts on 1410 kHz at a power of 2.5 kilowatts from a tower located on Racetrack Road in McDonough, Georgia, a southern suburb of Atlanta. The station is owned by Henry County Radio Co Inc. and originates from studios located on Brownlee Road in Jackson, Georgia. The station was originally WZAL and was assigned to 1540 kHz and was owned by Dallas Tarkenton (older brother of Fran Tarkenton), broadcasting until it was purchased by DeVan-Moore Communication, Inc. in 1980. The station saw successful growth in the hands of Jim DeVan (former manager of WMCD, Statesboro, Georgia) and moved to 1410 kHz in the late 1980's. Jim DeVan managed WZAL until his sudden death from a work-related accident in 1991. The station was sold to a former Tarkenton associate (Earnhart) who changed the call letters and moved the station. WKKP (Kopy Kat Programming) was local programming in the morning then simulcast programming from sister station WJGA-FM in Jackson, Georgia. The station has gone through many changes and now it broadcasts Classic Country programming from satellite.
