Previous Use of Call Sign
The call sign WWEL was originally assigned to an AM station licensed to Newton, Massachusetts and a sister FM station licensed to Medford, Massachusetts (both suburbs of Boston). This call sign was used between late 1972 and early 1979. The slogan of the FM station was "All is Well" but the call sign actually stood for Wellington Square in Medford, Massachusetts, where the studios are located. The AM station is now known as WXKS (AM) and carries Bloomberg Financial programming. The FM station became WXKS-FM (Kiss-108) and is a major player in the Boston ADI media market.
