This station most likely came on the air in 1969 or 1970, as the FM companion to WULA in Eufaula, simulcasting with the AM.  In 1981 the station broke from the AM. The calls were WLAZ; by 1982 they were WKQK, and the format was a mix of Top 40 and middle of the road music.  By the mid-80's the station was strictly Top 40 music when it took the WULA-FM calls again.  Later became oldies as "The River" with the WIOL calls in 1999.  The next year the station made a move towards the Columbus, Georgia market.  The station swapped places with 95.7 north of Columbus in 2005, with this station becoming WKZJ.  After the change the format here became adult contemporary.  It later changed to Urban AC.
