W264AK is an FM translator licensed for Toledo, Ohio. It operates on 100.7 MHz at 82 watts of power, as a translator for 105.5 WQQO. It carries an analog rebroadcast of the HD2 channel from WQQO's HD Radio sub carrier.


Ownership under CSN[edit]

W264AK received its first license on January 22, 1997, the owner was Calvary Chapel of Twin Falls Idaho. From 1997-April 2010, 100.7 was a fulltime repeater of KAWZ of Twin Falls Idaho. It carried programming from CSN, The Christian Satellite Network.

100.9 and 100.7 The Zone[edit]

On December 10, 2009, The Calvary Chapel of Twin Falls applied to the Federal Communications Commission to transfer the license for the translator to Cumulus Media. In return, CSN acquired 1560am WTOD (now WWYC) from Cumulus Broadcasting. The deal was an even trade, no money was exchanged between the two parties.

Once Cumulus Took control of 100.7, The Zone, which had been heard originally on 106.5 from November 2001-June 2009, was relaunched. The Zone, was moved to 94.5-HD3, when 106.5 changed its format to sports the prior year. 100.7 also moved up to 100.9 MHz. The callsign became W265CB. The Zone was still heard on WXKR 94.5 HD-3 as well. On July 29, 2010 W265CB was moved back to its original frequency, 100.7 MHz. Numerous complaints had been received about interference from 101.1 WRIF, from Detroit, Michigan and WMJK, from Clyde, Ohio, which also transmits on 100.9 MHz. The callsign was changed back to W264AK.

100.7 The Vibe[edit]

On May 5, 2011, after a few days of stunting. Cumulus changed 100.7's format to CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio) as 100.7 The Vibe. The station ran without DJs, however, The Andrew Z Morning Show was added soon after the launch, which had been formerly heard on 92.5 Kiss FM.

The Zone Returns again[edit]

The Vibe wasn't able to make inroads in the Toledo radio market, so on March 19, 2012, Cumulus Broadcasting changed 100.7's format back to modern rock as 100.7 The Zone.

On August 9, 2016, The Zone dropped modern rock and took on a satellite–fed active rock format, using Westwood One's, Rock 2.0 format.

Talk radio 100.7[edit]

On September 24, 2016 at midnight W264AK/WQQO-HD2 The Zone became Talk Radio 100.7, picking up the format from WTOD 1470 AM Toledo, which went silent.[1]. Talk Radio 100.7 features talk radio personalities Chris Plante, Phil Valentine, Dave Ramsey, Mark Levin, Michael Savage, John Batchelor, and Red Eye Radio.
