WTCA was founded by Kenneth E. Kunze. In 1963, he was granted a license from the FCC to operate WTCA-AM 1050. When WTCA had its beginning, all productions were broadcast from its transmitter site on Muckshaw Road in Plymouth with a business office on Water Street. In 1965, the broadcasting operation was moved to the Water Street location in order to accommodate an ever-growing listening audience. The station prospered from the start due to the community’s support. In 1966, the radio station moved into the old Plymouth Dairy located at 112 West Washington Street in Plymouth. The building was renovated into a broadcasting studio and remains the base of operations for WTCA.
In the early days, Ken’s wife Jeanne Kunze broadcast a live public interest program each day called This and That. Their daughter, Kathy Bottorff, continues that tradition with the station’s daily talk show, “What’s Your Opinion?” Sadly, Jeanne passed away in 1996 and Ken passed away in 2020.
The station has since expanded to include FM radio broadcasting in addition to their AM radio operations. WTCA is still operating daily radio programs from the AM transmitter site on Muckshaw Road and FM transmitter site at their Washington Street office in downtown Plymouth. WTCA proudly provides services to the local communities with unique programming, local news, hit music, and other features geared towards the communities of Marshall County.
