History[edit]

In 1946, with a 250-watt radio transmitter on Rossville Boulevard, the station signed on at 6:55am on January 21st as WAGC, said to stand for "Winning a Greater Chattanooga". A network affiliate of the Mutual Broadcasting System, it also carried local programming, including baseball games of the Chattanooga Lookouts. It became WOGA in November 1959, and WMOC in October 1961.[3] After a brief stint as WZRA from September 1983 to August 1984, it became WMOC again until November 1994, when it became WLMR.
