KWIC (99.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic hits format. Licensed to Topeka, Kansas, USA, the station is currently owned by Cumulus Media.

History[edit]

1992-1993: KESC[edit]

This was a temporary set of call letters.[1]

1993-1996: KWIC - Quick 99.3[edit]

The KWIC call letters were first assigned June 30, 1993. The station went on the air in April of 1994.[1]

1996-1999: KWIC - Hot 99.3[edit]

This was fed from ABC's Platinum Gold service.[1]

1999-2004: KWIC - Oldies 99.3[edit]

Cumulus swapped formats between 99.3 and 102.9. KWIC picked up the satellite oldies format, although they added local hosts for morning drive and middays. 102.9 picked up a locally-based Top 40 format. But the oldies on 99.3 was faring much, much better.[1]

2004-present: KWIC - 99.3 the Eagle[edit]

Soon after a local country station received a new owner, we got this suspicious format change from Cumulus, which cut into two of their other stations, KDVV and KMAJ-FM. I suspected at the time the owner of that country station had designs on a format change of their own to cut in to KDVV or KMAJ. KWIC has rated in the middle-to-upper part of the ratings for most of its span.[1]
