You have reached the website for the Voice of Swain County, North Carolina; Bryson City's Hometown Radio Station and Your Source for Local News, Sports, and Information broadcasts with the most powerful 500 watts in the surrounding communities. This is Tom Harris Memorial Station, AM 1590 WBHN, the Lighthouse.
Swain County's Radio Station is licensed to Lighthouse Broadcasting Incorporated, providing wholesome, Christian programming 24/7. Quick movement by the citizens of Swain County enabled this change. The oldest papers found, state that WBHN signed on for the first time on October 30th, 1967.
On the choice frequency of 1590 kHz, this 500 watt station will always operate in the interest of the community, being managed by a democratic-executive board. This station will always operate in accordance to the public interest in complying with what a true community station is--live and local--not canned satellite radio! The station plans to bring you an original morning show, mid-day show, local news programming from a staffed news department, The Trading Post, the Mountain Sports Report, and the Gloryland Gospel Show, just to name a few! All Maroon Devil Athletics will also be carried, as well as WCU Catamount Sports with both ranging from football to basketball. Recreation leagues also are planned to be covered. Perhaps, the station may decide to carry the Atlanta Braves games and NASCAR races also! Not forgetting our core focus, WBHN will also carry plenty of preaching, praying, and singing with a preference for local folks. The talent of the local area will be tapped into and featured as often as the Gospel Greats from Yesterday and Today are aired (via call-in request songs, etc.).
With this in mind, view our programming schedule on the next page under the "programming schedule" tab, and be sure to tune in and listen! You may also leave us a comment on our "CONTACT US" page; we will answer you in an expedited, timely manner.
We appreciate all your continued support!!!
