- A company called
Appalachian Broadcasting Company filed for this frequency back in
1992, as WZJV, licensed to Glencoe near Gadsden. The station went
through a few minor changes before finally coming on the air in late
1993 as WGMZ. The format was a mix of beautiful music and
middle-of-the-road oldies, an unusual format for a station of the
era. In 1999 the station was sold to Clear Channel, who flipped
the station to its current format of classic rock.
