Signed on in March 1992 with the existing calls, WMXA (MiX Auburn).  Had been owned by Connecticut-based Qantum Communications until May 2014, when all their stations were sold to Clear Channel.

The station received a construction permit to relocate from their old tower on Marvyn Parkway to the AM tower behind the company studios off Veterans Parkway, northwest of Opelika, in May 2018.  The station lowered its antenna height but raised power from 3.5 to 6 kW.
