What does KWAM mean?

KWAM (990 AM) is a commercial radio station in Memphis, Tennessee, featuring a conservative talk radio format known as "The Mighty 990". Owned by Todd Starnes via Starnes Media Group, LLC, the stations serves the Memphis metropolitan area. KWAM's studios are located in Memphis, while the transmitter is in Marion, Arkansas. KWAM was founded in 1947 in West Memphis, Arkansas, as KWEM, helping "break" artists such as Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Ike Turner and Howlin' Wolf in the late 1940s and 1950s. By day, KWAM is powered at 10,000 watts. But because 990 AM is a Canadian clear channel frequency, KWEM must reduce power at night to only 450 watts to avoid interference. It uses a directional antenna at all times. Programming is also heard in Memphis and adjacent communities on low-power FM translator W300DE (107.9 FM) and is available online.
