History:
Signed on in 1992 as WKXX by Kerry Rich.  The WKXX calls have a bit of legacy in the nearby Birmingham market, where they sat for years on competitive CHR "Kicks 106". The station was previously CHR, but has since mellowed to Hot AC.

In mid-August 2020, the station flipped to Fox Sports Radio as "Fox Sports Northeast Alabama".  The change apparently went unnoticed by radio observers for several weeks, until it was reported by Radio Insight.
