- A permit was
received to build out this station in the early 90's, when it
received a call sign of WYAZ. Before going on air the calls
changed to WKCN, in October 1992. The station signed on
officially in May 1993 as "Kissin 99.3" and has been country ever
mid-February 2011, the station received a permit to change
facilities and drop power from 50 kW to 29 kW, as well as ditch the
directional antenna. This will improve coverage in Auburn and
Valley, while taking away some coverage around Eufaula and Cuthbert,
Georgia. This facility was put on the air in April 2011.
- The station has run
several HD subchannels, feeding various translators around the
Columbus/Phenix City area. The HD-3 feed was Spanish format
called "Unidos 107.7". The format never gained popularity in the
market, and was supposed to be pulled by PMB at the start of
2015. Eventually they moved the hip-hop from the HD4 to HD3 and
killed off the Spanish music. The HD4 returned in the Spring of
2017, with an as-yet unknown format.
