History:
This station signed on for the first time in late September 2011 as "105-1 Jamz".  It is being LMA'd by Apex to SummitMedia in Birmingham, who also runs a "Jamz" station there.  Local comedian Roy Wood Jr. debuts with the station as the morning show host.  The station is broadcasting from the old "ARRO 100.7" site that Apex used last time they were in the market.  The station began broadcasting in HD digital radio sometime in the summer of 2015 and added the AAA-formatted "Birmingham Mountain Radio" program to its HD2, which is also feeding a newly built translator that came on in July of 2015.
