From 1947 until her passing on April 23, 2012, Agnes Simpson was the owner and force behind WOOF-AM & FM in Dothan, Ala. The FM continues to be a top-rated Adult Contemporary station serving the Wiregrass region of Alabama, led by descendant Katrina Leigh Simpson Thomas.
Two weeks ago, the company led by Clay Holladay decided to compete against WOOF-FM, by way of a 250-watt FM translator.
Now, this translator’s previous operations have come under scrutiny by the FCC’s Audio Division. The company run by family member Bob Holladay that serves as the licensee for this translator is being charged with “willful and repeated violations” of FCC rules, and they’re serious.
