The MX in the calls actually predates the use of any type of "Mix" slogan. The station hit the air with these calls in 1974. The format varied between Top 40 and AC, as "WKMX FM 107". It moved towards AOR in the early 80's, "Rockin' the south, 107 KMX".  In the late 90s, KMX found itself in a quandary, moving into WOOF-FM's AC territory, letting new competitor "Z-105.3" sneak in with a CHR format.  In more recent years, WOOF-FM has moved into soft rock territory and KMX has seemingly settled into a nice Hot AC niche, while Z 105.3 moved on to other formats.  In June of 2015 the station received a construction permit to leave its longtime tower location east of Elba for a spot closer to Dothan.  With an accompanying drop in height, this will reduce the coverage the station has on the rural I-65 corridor considerably.  That facility went on the air in late November 2016.
