On April 8, 2011, WROX tweaked their format moving from Modern Rock to Modern Adult Contemporary. However, the change proved unsuccessful, even though the station still reported as Alternative Rock per Mediabase & Nielsen BDS. They would later revert to their older sound, as a result. The station had been leaning contemporary hit radio mainly due to the fact the Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Hampton Roads did not have a contemporary hit radio station until WVHT launched in 2009. The contemporary hits lean was dropped in August 2011.
