- Since the late
50's this station has been an independent easy listening outlet,
with the called WPEX, later changed to WMEZ. Station was owned by a
F T C Brewer Company, a local stereo dealer who used the station to
promote the sale of upscale sound equipment. For much of the 80's
and 90's was a sister station to WBSR AM. Was a "Schulke" beautiful
music station during the height of that format's success. Went to
easy listening vocals in the early 90's. Now calls itself Soft Rock
94.1 with call letters rarely mentioned. Licensed to Pensacola, this
station enjoys much higher ratings there than in Mobile, though it's
transmitter site is in Baldwin County.
- In 2004 the
1800 foot tower that held WPMI-TV, WHBR-TV, WJLQ-FM, WKSJ-FM,
WBLX-FM and WYOK-FM fell during Hurricane Ivan. The stations
later relocated to alternate tower facilities. Due to the
significant time this station spent off the air, its ratings
suffered greatly in the following years.
- In May
2012 it was announced that longtime owner Pamal had agreed to sell
their Pensacola cluster, including WMEZ, to Cumulus.
