A radio station that bills itself as the oldest black station in the state moved down the dial overnight.

At midnight, KCOH moved from 1430AM to its new frequency at 1230AM. The change was the result of the station being sold to a religious group last November. It was going to change the station's format, but some investors were able to work out a deal to keep the station and the call letters.

There will be one big change as long-time radio host Wash Allen is parting ways. Still, community leaders hope listeners and sponsors will give the new frequency a chance.

KCOH has been on the air since 1953.
