- This station has had many owners and
many call signs. In the early 80's it was WWLX, then later WKNI
(from 1987 to 2000 according to Wikipedia).
that, it was WZNN and had a sports format. The station was
purchased by a Hispanic broadcaster in 2002 and it flipped to Spanish
language programming sometime afterwards, with the WJHX calls.
This station is co-owned with WZGX, a small AM in the Birmingham
metro, by Bar Broadcasting. For a while, both stations simulcast
WQCR, another small suburban Birmingham AM'er, with their "La 10 Q"
regional Mexican music format. It appears that it may have later
changed to "El Patron" in a simulcast with 1450 WZGX in Bessemer after
that station lost its "El Jefe" format to another Birmingham area
station. This station and 1450 have both been reported as silent
by listeners in 2014. At the end of October 2014, the license for this
station and WZGX in Bessemer were both deleted by the FCC. Bar
Broadcasting later got the license for the Bessemer station
re-instated, but allowed this one to remain deleted.
