History[edit]

as WCHM in 1990

The station signed on the air January 9, 1990 as WCHM, and less than a month later became WMJE 102.9FM, "Majic 103FM", with a soft AC format. The station changed format to Contemporary hit radio in 1997, to Hot Adult Contemporary in 2000, to Oldies in 2003, all the while retaining the "Majic" branding. The station changed to "Kool FM" for a short time before dropping its music programming altogether in 2010.

as WMJE, Kool, 2010

WMJE dropped its music programming on October 4, 2010 and became News/Talk 102.9 WDUN-FM, partially simulcasting sister station News/Talk AM 550 WDUN.[3]

According to FCC records, WDUN-FM has one repeater station, W300BF 107.9 MHz in Commerce, Georgia, owned by Athens Christian Radio, Inc.

Sports programming[edit]

WDUN-FM airs the Gwinnett Braves Radio Network and the Gwinnett Gladiators, as well as Georgia Southern Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons (with which WMJE was affiliated prior to the format change). The station also carries some local high school sports live, including Gainesville High School.
