FM History Profile: WJWZ
One of the newer commercial
stations in the state, it signed on in 1998.
Arbitron had to reissue
the Montgomery ratings book for Fall 1998 because WJWZ appeared third overall
in its first book. The problem was that the station's construction permit
had been issued with the WICE call letters and Arbitron could not locate
the station in the phone book to confirm the new calls or black contemporary
In September, the station
switched from its hip hop/urban format (which moved to WBAM in Montgomery)
to talk and news. The change was only temporary because as of early October
the station is back to its musical format.
