A TIS station on this frequency and in this area first came on the air in the late summer or early fall of 2004, running a short loop of information about the city of Leeds and highway construction on I-20, as WPZX365.  That license expired later and was a new one was filed in 2012 with the current facilities, but located on Barber Motorsports Parkway.

In the past, the station was located right in the media of I-20 near the Barber Motorsports exit, where it was destroyed on more than one occasion by people who ran off the road.  It hasn't been reported on the air since about 2012.
