The Establishment of WMTC

Wilfred Fisher

WMTC Mountain Gospel Radio was founded in 1948 as part of the Kentucky Mountain Holiness Association, but how was WMTC established?  Whose idea was it to start a Christian radio station in the hills of Eastern Kentucky? This is the history of WMTC from the perspective of its founding manager Dr. Wilfred Fisher.

After graduating from Asbury seminary in 1939, Dr. Fisher and his wife Alice came to Kentucky Mountain Bible Institute where they were invited to come teach.
