- Was at one time
known as "Eagle 102.1", playing classic rock. Appears to have come
on the air in December 1984 as WWAV, airing the Satellite 41 music
format targeted towards middle-aged women. Was owned by Mark and
Renee Carter, who now own jazz outlet WSBZ in Fort Walton
Beach. In December 2011 all the Qantum stations in the FWB
market were sold to Apex. In July 2012 the station received a
construction permit to move the transmit site from Santa Rosa Beach
to one of the towers along Hollywood Boulevard in Fort Walton Beach,
but it was rescinded that same day. In November 2012 the
station again received a permit to move to a tower off Hollywood
Boulevard, which was put online in March 2013. Right behind
it, a permit to move back to the Goldsby Road site. In late June
2016 it was announced that the South Carolina-based Community
Broadcasters, LLC, acquired the entire Apex Fort Walton radio ground
for an undisclosed sum.
