- Began in 1946
as WKUL, with 250 watts. Was an affiliate of both Keystone and
Mutual networks in the late 50's. The format and calls
eventually moved to FM. Calls changed to WXXR-AM in October 1982.
Had a stint as oldies, then eventually began simulcasting a
satellite oldies format along with Holly Pond FM station WXXR-FM.
The FM went to classic country when Cullman station WFMH (FM) dumped
that format, and WXXR-AM went to sports talk. Around September
2002 the calls changed to WFMH. Around September 2004 it appears
they dropped some gospel programming for full time sports talk; the
station may have gone to a news/talk format before going back to
sports, after being purchased by Williams Communications.
WFMH calls actually appear to go back to 1949 on 1300 kHz; see the
history for WMCJ for more information.
