- 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. debuted 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. That HD-2/translator combo was severed in
December of 2017 when the translator began relaying Townsquare's
WTUG-HD3 classic hits format. It appears that WALJ dropped the
HD completely at the same time.
