History:
Started off as WCOV FM in the late 60's, sister station of WCOV AM and TV. The format was Drake-Chenault's "Hit Parade" with the slogan "Stereo 92". The station was sold to a salesperson (last name of Griffin). In 1972 it became WKLH FM, an automated MoR/AC stand alone. In May 1978 it was sold again to Colonial Broadcasting and it became WLWI, "I-92", a country giant which consistently is at or near the top of the market's audience ratings. The station won the small market station of the year award from the Academy of Country Music in 1984.  Colonial sold the station to Cumulus in 1998.
