History[edit]

WGNI was a Top 40 station in the days when the format was heard on AM radio. On December 24, 1981 was WAAV. On May 5, 1984 was WBMS.

Prior to 1990, WBMS was one of the first urban contemporary radio stations in Wilmington.[1]

In May 20, 1996, Community Broadcasting sold WBMS, WMFD and WUOY radio stations to a new company called Ocean Broadcasting. WBMS, a CNN Headline News station, became WAHH, airing the "Radio AAHS" format for children, as well as some local content. The format included news, sports and games as well as music by James Taylor, Mariah Carey, The Muppets, Ren and Stimpy, Gloria Estefan, Animaniacs, Craig and Company, Smoking Armadillos, Fun Factory and Better Than Ezra.[2]

WLSG, WWIL and WWIL-FM were part of Family Radio Group of Wilmington on July 13, 2000 when that company purchased WDVV and WMYT.[3]
