WGIV, Charlotte’s first African-American radio station that originated in the 1940s, has traditionally been an AM station but has recently added an FM frequency. The urban inspiration talk/gospel station can be heard on 1370 AM and now 103.3 FM. You can read about WGIV's new venture in this week's issue of The Charlotte Post.
