WFLI-AM 1070, the radio station that introduced new rock 'n' roll to the market in the 1960s and '70s, is back on the air with only the second owners in its 56-year history.

Evan Stone and Marshall Bandy bought the station from Ying Hua Benns, the widow of Billy Benns, who launched the station in Lookout Valley.

"We are only the second owners and it is the only station in Chattanooga with its original call letters," Stone said.

Benns had been trying to sell the station for some time and signed it off from the air in April.
