Programming and History[edit]

Before becoming WKVZ in 2009, the 102.1 FM frequency in Dexter was an oldies station using the call letters WGUY-FM, which went on the air in 1993. However in December 2001 the station changed to a satellite smooth jazz format, only to revert to the oldies format in March 2003 and in September 2008 began simulcasting on co-owned WFZX before being sold to Educational Media Foundation and changing formats in February 2009 to K-LOVE's christian music format. The station carried University of Maine men's and women's basketball for the 2007 season before moving to WAEI.
