WMYB-FM signed on January 11, 1965 as a sister station to 1450/WMYB. and played Country music for a while. Later, the station switched to disco with the call letters WXTL. For nearly two decades the station was WJYR "Joy 92", playing beautiful music, which added more and more vocals during the 1990s. As of 1997, WJYR was the no. 3 station in the market. By 1999, WJYR had added Delilah. When Next Media bought the station from Hirsh Broadcasting Group in 2000, WJYR was no. 1. However, the adult contemporary format and call letters of "Star 99.5" were moved to 92.1, which had a 50,000-watt signal at the time compared to 25,000 watts for 99.5.
