Service put this station on back in 1966 as the FM companion to WORM
(AM), with the same Class A 3 kW setup it has today, and transmitting
from the same place it transmits from today. Through the early
days up into the early 70's it mostly simulcast the AM, which had a
country music format.
Gerald W. Hunt bought this station and its AM sister in 1984. By
the early 90's, the station split from the AM and took the country
into a more mainstream direction while the AM flipped to gold-based
oldies. It's been country ever since.
