- This station
came on the air around February 18th, testing. It
is unknown what the format will be, but the testing was a relay of
Stroh's other station, Hot 103.5 in Huntsville.
- It has been
reported that the simulcast of Hot 103.5 only lasted a few days, and
that the station broadcast a dead carrier for about week, then went
silent. It was silent after that until sometime in August
2008, where locals heard oldies and the "River 97.5/101.5" ID.
Shortly thereafter the station went off the air, again. It was
reported on again in late September 2008 - this time with a
Christian Contemporary format.
- In October of
2008 it was reported that the station finally seemed to be on the
air for good, with a contemporary Christian / Christian CHR type
format. The station is also being heard in Montgomery on
W268BH 101.5, a translator moved-in from Greenville.
- Put on the air
by Stroh Communications, who runs a station in the Huntsville area,
the station was transferred to Back Door Broadcasting in November
