It is one of the few stations left in the United States that are owned by an individual rather than a corporation. WHII had a sister station, WXIY at 94.3 FM on which was a simulcast of the AM programming. In the 1970s, WHII was a daytime only station, and when WHII (AM) signed off, the sister station WXIY (FM) changed to R&B format until its signoff at midnight. In the 1980s, the WXIY dropped its callsign in favor of WHII, still a country music station, simulcasting. In the late 1980s or early 1990s, the FM station was sold to Blakeney Communications, Inc. and became WKZW "KZ-94".
