History:
This is a fairly distant rimshot into the Florence area that provides secondary coverage to the far western parts of the radio market. This station was spawned by 1350 WKCU in Corinth in January, 1967 as a class A that duplicated most of the AM's Top 40 programming, with the WKCU-FM calls.  In 1983 the calls became WXRZ and the station went adult contemporary.  In the mid 90s the station bumped up to a full 6 kW class A.  The station was owned by a company called NMSC, Inc. (The Progressive Radio Company?) until they filed for bankruptcy in 2000. During that bankruptcy period the station jumped to a class C3 with their current power and antenna location.  Two years later, the station was acquired by Telesouth and became a part of their Supertalk Mississippi statewide network.
