- Before taking
the urban contemporary route as "106 ZNJ" in the summer of 2006, the
station played oldies and had a Contemporary Christian music program
called "Alive 106". The slogan later became "Z 106". In
June 2011 the station was sold by West Alabama Broadcasters to
Westburg, who undertook some technical improvements to help the
station sound better. Under West Alabama's ownership, the
station was noted for poor sound quality and programs airing muffled
or almost completely inaudible. The improvements have been
noted to be complete in the late summer of 2011; WZNJ was heard
simulcasting on WXAL AM in town in late November 2011. In
early December 2011 the urban/R&B format that existed under West
Alabama Broadcasters moved to WXAL and the a classic hits "River"
format debuted. That lasted until 1 June 2015 when they dropped
classic hits for Urban AC, with Steve Harvey's syndicated morning
show. The AM and FM are now simulcasting again, too.
