WBLX, the dominant FM black contemporary music outlet in Mobile, moved it's AM daytimer WMOO from 1550 to 600 for improved coverage and night operation in the late 80's.  The station has had many call letters, including WLIT, WBLX AM and WHOZ. Started with a black gospel format, then went black oldies, then Radio Aahs (children's format). After that format failed to impress, they went back to black gospel with the WDLT calls. In the spring of 2000, the station switched to CNN Headline News audio. The station is now owned by Cumulus, along with WBLX-FM, WDLT-FM, WGOK-AM and WYOK-FM. Since they wound up with two black gospel stations, they changed the format of WDLT, it being the one with the format for the shortest amount of time.
