Bro. Ricky Cothren founded Gospel Broadcasting in 1999 with $700 in a coffee can and a vision to operate a radio station. Today, Gospel Broadcasting owns and operates WYZD Radio in Dobson, NC (1560 AM) and WCOK Radio in Sparta, NC (1060 AM). In addition to operating the two radio stations, Gospel Broadcasting produces Bro. Cothren’s radio broadcasts the Gospel Pulpit which can be heard on 8 stations in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky. There is also a CD of the month called the Gospel Voice.
