This is the Combs Family who formalilly owned WBFC from 1998 to 2015

WBFC, “We Broadcast For Christ,” is a locally owned radio station broadcasting the Gospel for over 40 years in Stanton, Kentucky.

WBFC was built in 1974 and started as a listener-funded radio station under the ownership of Forest Drake. A few years later, the station was sold to Pastor Roger Wells. Under Brother Wells’ leadership, the station began supplementing income with local advertising and adding many new and exciting programming options. The station was then sold to a young man named Jerry Wilson. After eight successful years managing the station, Jerry sold WBFC to Bud Parks of Stanton, Kentucky.

After a few short years, a minister named James H. Combs felt God calling him to purchase the station. From October 1998 through September 2015, the Combs family faithfully used the ministry God had given them to proclaim the good news of the Gospel through music and the Word to the people of Eastern Kentucky.

For several years, those at Mountain Gospel Radio had been praying that God would open additional avenues for ministry for the people of Eastern Kentucky. In February 2014, news of an upcoming sale of WBFC 1470 AM reached the staff at Mountain Gospel. Pastor James Combs and the Mountain Gospel staff wanted to see WBFC remain a solid Christian station in the Stanton community. After a year and a half of prayer and planning, WBFC was sold to the Kentucky Mountain Holiness Association, becoming a sister station of WMTC.

Today, WBFC and WMTC partner together to bring solid Christian programming and the message of the Gospel through Southern Gospel music to the people of Eastern Kentucky. Together, Mountain Gospel Radio reaches as far as Lexington to Hazard, Kentucky over the airwaves.
