History:
Formerly Rock 102.5, this station was later known as "Eagle 102.5" with the same rock format.  Liners mentioning both names still aired from time to time but eventually the Eagle moniker won out.  After Magic Broadcasting bought the station in 2011, the format changed to a 70s and 80s classic hits formats as "Q 102", part of a larger Dothan shake-up.  Eventually sold to Gulf South, it was sold in 2011 to Alabama Media in a complicated deal involving Magic Broadcasting.  Members of the Holladay family are involved in both Gulf South and Alabama Media.  In May of 2015 the station was granted a permit to move to a common tower used by other co-owned stations off Ross Clark Circle, and that facility was put into use in late November 2016.
