- This station, with its
eclectic mix of music on a non-commercial channel, got started in
1999, when it came on the air as WOWL. Those calls were
previously on a TV channel in Florence (now WHDF). The station's
RDS data has been used in the past to send "shout outs" and hellos to
listeners, as well as send the station's request line phone number.
On 21 August 2021 a tornado struck Iuka, taking this station and
several others off the air. It returned to the air shortly
In late 2022, Michael Brandt's Southern Broadcasting LLC purchased
WXWX Marietta, MS and WWMR Saltillo, MS, which triggered a series of
format changes and shifts in Northeast Mississippi. WWMR's
Christian programming was dropped, with some of it moving to
WOWL. Much of the weekend programming is now religious.
The station is now also the home for Booneville High School Sports.
In January 2023 it was observed that the station's website had
launched a new Alternative Rock channel called 91 X, and advertised it
as being available soon on "WOWL-HD3", implying the station is
planning to install an HD transmitter at some point.
