In early 1991, WKWQ (now known as WZMJ) changed frequencies from 95.3 to 93.1, leaving the 95.3 frequency open. The frequency was reallocated to South Congaree by the FCC and after 2 years, the license was awarded to Glory Communications, a group led by former WWDM sales manager/media specialist Alex Snipe. WFMV signed on the air October 29, 1993 with its present format. The call letters, WFMV, had been previously assigned to an FM radio station in Blairstown, New Jersey.
