Port Broadcasting
History:
107.1 originated as WROA FM, companion of 1390 AM, with beautiful music. The owner sold the station  when he upgraded another local station at 107.9 from Poplarville. In the 80's it became WXLS, lite rock. After ownership consolidation with several other local signals, the lite rock format was moved and 107.1 became WXYK, a CHR station known as "Power 108".  Later that was changed to "Kicker 108" and now it's known as "The Monkey".

The station was sold, along with the rest of the Alpha Media cluster in Biloxi, to Telesouth Communications for $2.5 million in December 2018.  Owning all of Alpha's properties in the market would have put Telesouth over the ownership caps, so they were forced to divest this station to Port Broadcasting for $300,000.  Port Broadcasting is owned by Donald Stewart Davenport, nephew of Telesouth Communications principal Stephen C. Davenport.
