History[edit]

WFFH History[edit]

WFFH was previously WRLG & was then a sister station to WRLT owned by Tuned In Broadcasting. In early 1995 the station's format changed from "The Exxit" from Major Networks to The Underground Network (once called WDRE).[2] Several months later, the station changed its format to Active Rock Branded as "Thunder 94". In the October 1997, facing intense pressure from WKDF (which had flipped to mainstream modern rock some time before), Tuned In Broadcasting pulled the plug on Thunder 94, and the format changed to Triple-A format & became branded as ""The Phoenix", playing a mix of rock and rap music.[3][4] Shortly before the sale to its current owners Salem Media Group, WRLG began simulcasting then sister station WRLT

WFFI History[edit]

WFFI was previously operated under the callsign WYYB, and was a simulcast of WRLG, which broadcast the Active Rock format under "Thunder 94", the Triple-A Format under "The Phoenix" & briefly a simulcast of WRLT.[5][6] Prior to this it was briefly the FM affiliate of WDKN, a community-oriented station in Dickson, Tennessee, to which it was originally licensed.

WBOZ History[edit]

WBOZ was assigned call sign WLMM on August 23, 1991. On June 1, 1994, the station changed its call sign to the current "WBOZ" began broadcasting the Southern Gospel Format.[7] WBOZ would broadcast the Southern Gospel format from 1994 until July 2012, when the station dropped its Southern Gospel music format and began simulcasting sister station WFFH.[8]
