started off as WKZJ, licensed to Greenville. At one time it
was classic rock "95.7 The River". In 2005 the went through an
upgrade, re-licensing to Waverly Hall and moving closer to
Columbus. That same year, the station swapped places with 92.7
in Eufaula. That station took the WKZJ calls and this one
became WIOL-FM. After the change this station was "Mix 95.7"
and had a Hot AC format. In October 2009 the station began
simulcasting the sports format on WEAM-AM out of Columbus (a station
which later became WIOL-AM.) Originally carrying programming
from Yahoo! Sports Network, the station dropped both Yahoo! and "The
Zone" nickname when they picked up ESPN.
