History of WENN, including its time on 105.9 and now 101.9 FM.
RDS display from the station on a GMC Yukon's radio.
- 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. At one time, this station
appeared on the HD Radio consortium's list of soon-to-be active HD
broadcasters, with an old school hip-hop format slated for the
HD-2. It appears that never came to fruition and the listing
was taken down in late 2014 or early 2015.
