- 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.
