Other Information:
WNOE was the city's original top 40 leader in the late 50's. Call letters stood for its owner, James A. Noe, who also owned KNOE in Monre, Louisiana. Prior to the top 40, it was a Mutual network affiliate adult station WNOE stayed with top 40 until the late 60's when it was losing ground to WTIX; it then went to a pop-adult sound. Around 1973, it went back to top 40, using its FM station to simulcast some of the time. Later went country since the market lacked a full time country outlet. WNOE AM and FM until the AM's ratings ceased to add anything to the totals. The AM was then sold off to a religious broadcaster who changed the calls to WLNO.
