Company signed this station on in 1987, as a small Class A companion
to their AM 1350, WELB. Originally assigned the WZTZ call
sign, the station either simulcast or held a similar Country music
format to the AM side for several years. The stations finally
split in the early 90's, with the AM going Oldies while this station
took on a full range Country music format.
The calls changed to WVVL in June of 2006, as "Weevil 101", a nod to
the area's diversification away from cotton. Originally a
straight-up country station, they transitioned to a classic country
format in the summer of 2010 or thereabouts.
