- Before being
owned by Citadel (in a deal with six other Tuscasloosa stations), it
was owned by Apex Broadcasting. Before that, Radio South
Inc. As far as anyone can remember this station has been WTUG
and had a black adult targeted format. Before the Citadel
aquisition, the station went by the slogan "Power 93, T-U-G".
- Citadel was
later taken over by Cumulus. In the spring of 2012 the entire
Cumulus cluster in Tuscaloosa was acquired by Townsquare
Media. They are adding (or have added) HD in the summer of
2016, with a subchannel rebroadcasting WNPT-FM in Marion. It's
being used to feed a translator in town to help coverage with the
rimshot signal of "Tide 102.9". In mid-December 2017,
Townsquare launched a classic hits format on the HD-3, pairing it
with a translator and marketing it as "Nick 97.5", after the coach
(Nick Saban) of Alabama Crimson Tide football.
