- Was originally on
102.3 as a class A offshoot of WEBY AM in Milton, a suburb of
Pensacola. It ran 3 kW at 145 feet early on. Moved to 102.7 to
become a class C facility in the mid 70's, with 100 kW from 500
feet. Around the time the FM upgraded, WEBY/WXBM owner Mapoles
Broadcasting lost the license to the AM due to violating the equal
time provisions of the FCC rulebook.
Moved to a taller tower in Baldwin County in 1986. In 1992 the
station was transferred to June Broadcasting, Inc., and in later it
wound up in the hands of Albany Broadcasting Company of New York
state, which later became Pamal Broadcasting.
Has always been country since it's inception in the 60's. Now a
Pensacola market ratings leader.
- In May
2012 it was announced that longtime owner Pamal had agreed to sell
their Pensacola cluster, WXBM and WMEZ, to Cumulus. These were
the last stations Pamal owned in Florida and marked their exit from
- As part
of a nationwide marketing push, Cumulus flipped WXBM to their Nash
FM branding on 3 February 2014. After a short time, the local hosts
were mostly let go.
In March 2020, the station reverted to just using its call letters,
with the slogan, "Your Country Station".
