Prior to its flip to Rhythmic Top 40 in the Spring of 2000, WBTT's previous format was Country, when it was WQNU.

They are also the third FM station in the United States to use the WBTT call letters; the other two were WRNW/Milwaukee, Wisconsin and WYDB/Dayton, Ohio, both also owned by Clear Channel.
