History:
This station had always been WENN, companion to WENN AM (then WAGG). John McClendon had started this station (as well many others, like WOKJ Jackson and WYES Tampa.) Had been R&B since the beginning in 1969. At one point, the AM and FM simulcast.  The format and calls remained until WENN was switched with "106 X", when 105.9 became WENN and 107.7 became "The X", with a modern rock format in December 1997. Citadel later applied to lower WRAX's power and move the transmitter site to Red Mountain. In March 2005 the rock format began migrating to WANZ (formerly Z 100.5, The X's main rock competitor). On the last day of March 2005, WRAX flipped to black CHR/AC as "Hot 107.7, Birmingham's home for hip hop and R&B", from their new transmitter site atop Red Mountain.
