History:
Before becoming The Bear, this station was a move-in from the Walker County community of Cordova.  There it had a country format under ownership of New Century Radio.  After the move from Cordova to Tuscaloosa (licensed to unincorporated Coaling) in 2004 it became oldies, as a part of the Apex stable of stations.  After being aquired by Citadel, it flipped back to country.  Citadel later became a part of Cumulus.
 
In the spring of 2012 the entire Cumulus cluster in Tuscaloosa was acquired by Townsquare Media.
