- Has apparently
always been WIZB. The FCC database shows the station going
through three call sign changes on one day. On April 2nd,
1986 it started as WIZB-FM, then changed to WXLE, only to go back to
WIZB (minus the -FM suffix). Has not always been a Christian
religious station, however. Before going to God, the station
had stints as straight-up rock and top 40 in the mid 90's. In
the late 80's it was oldies and had zero listeners. More
recently, it was "His Radio", but at some point in 2013 it changed
over to the Joy FM network, consisting of a station in Atlanta and a
few others in Florida.
The station was taken off the air by Hurricane Michael, which hit
the area on 10 October 2018, but it was back on just a day later.
