PS-I-92 | WLWI
Text-Montgomery's #1 For New Country
The Cumulus studios in downtown Montgomery.
- 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.
