History[edit]

The Former Logo of WNSX from 2005 until August 31, 2014 under their "Smooth Rock N Roll" branding

WNSX signed on in 1999, simulcasting its then-sister station WMDI (now WBKA). In late 2000, the station was purchased by Clear Channel Communications and began simulcasting the classic rock format of its sister station WFZX. WNSX then carried Fox Sports Radio for several years before returning to a simulcast of WFZX. In 2005, the station was sold to Stony Creek Broadcasting (Mark L. Osborne, managing member)[2] and adopted its current format.[3]
