// WTUG-HD4 Tuscaloosa, AL
This station's original construction permit dates back to October, 2009 to a group called Anderson Communications.  The permit was sold the next year to TTI, Inc.  The station was assigned the call sign WMHZ and began broadcasting with Christmas music in early December 2012.  That same month, the station acquired Tuscaloosa translator W265CG.  After Christmas, the station transitioned to a classic country format with no liners, announcers or commercials.  That morphed into a soft AC format in January 2013, still with the occasional jarring classic country tune and no other content.  It appears that the format morphed again to classic rock, this time in March 2013.  In August 2013 the station also began being heard on W292DU in Tuscaloosa and branding itself as "Rock 106.3". 

In late August 2019, the W267CZ translator received a construction permit to change to a directional antenna.  It had previously been tied to WACT, but when it returned to the air it was rebroadcasting WMHZ instead. A license to cover for that facility was filed at the end of April 2021.

The station was also observed to be simulcasting on WTUG-HD4 in June of 2021.
