Is 94.1FM owned by the same company as WLSG, 1340 AM?

Q. Is the FM station at 94.1 owned by the same company that operates the Christian station WLSG 1340 AM? It is simulcasting the same programming but is very weak and basically only heard downtown. Are there plans to improve the signal and broadcast in stereo? It sounds like the feed is coming off the internet with very poor quality.

A. After the sale of the 1340 AM frequency several years ago, the FCC approved the placement of a low-power translator that constantly repeats the signal of the station’s Christian music and Southern gospel programming. That frequency is what is heard on 94.1 FM in limited locations.

According to Jim Stevens with Carolina Christian Radio, which is no longer affiliated with 1340AM, there are no plans to strengthen the translator’s frequency at this time.
