- History of this
station is pretty much unknown. It is a simulcast of another area
lower power FM station, licensed to Trinity.
- From a site
contributor, this information on a swap-sale idea being tossed
around radio world: "In a dizzying fruitbasket turnover, rivals
Clear Channel and Cumulus have agreed to a station sale that goes
like this: Clear Channel would sell WWXQ and WXQW to Cumulus
for $3.3 million. As part of the deal, Cumulus agrees not to
oppose Clear Channel's proposed move of WLAY-FM from Tuscumbia to
Huntsville. Confused yet? Wait, there's more! Also
as part of the deal, Cumulus would get to relocate the WHRP-FM
antenna (which I believe is currently located near Winchester, TN)
onto Clear Channel's WDRM-FM tower in Huntsville."
- On April 5th 2006
this station went silent, then began simulcasting WHRP-FM with a
urban format. The oldies format moved to WLAY-FM, 100.3. The station
currently has a construction permit to relicense to the town of
Gurley, with a drop in antenna height and increase in power. The
coverage area does not appear to change very much. As of
January 2008, the station has taken the WHRP calls from 93.3 and the
WXQW calls moved to 660 AM in Fairhope (!)
