WCRT (1160 AM) is a Class B AM radio station licensed to the community of Donelson, Tennessee, near Nashville. Broadcasting a format of evangelical preaching and talk shows, WCRT is owned by Bott Communications, a Christian broadcaster, which bought the station, formerly WAMB, from longtime Nashville broadcaster Bill Barry (now deceased; he later operated a lower-powered WAMB on the frequency of 1200 kHz).
The WCRT callsign is derived from Christian Radio Tennessee. WCRT broadcasts at 50,000 watts during the day and 1,000 watts at night. Because the 1160 kHz frequency receives interference from a Cuban radio station operating in excess of the officially notified power under international treaties, WCRT has maintained a special temporary authority since 1990 from the Federal Communications Commission to operate an FM station at night as well. This station has the callsign WCRT-FM1 and, from 1998 on, has operated on 98.7 MHz from one of the WCRT (AM) towers.
