FM History Profile: WEYY
This station was put
on the air by WEYY-AM in 1973, with the WHTB calls and an automated AC
format. The calls were changed to WEYY-FM when WEYY-AM's frequency moved
to Oxford, AL.
Now it gets interesting!
The WHTB calls originally
belonged to Talladega's first FM station, put on the air in the late 50's
(on 97.1 MHz) by WNUZ-AM. That FM frequency was moved to Sylacauga,
and the WHTB calls were adopted by this station, whose frequency (92.7)
from Birmingham to Talladega. Then WEYY-AM's frequency
to Oxford. A whole lotta movin' goin' on!
