History[edit]

The station was granted its original construction permit by the Federal Communications Commission on January 9, 1991.[3] The new station was assigned call letters WZQD on March 8, 1991.[1] On September 20, 1991, the station was assigned new call letters WWGZ.[1]

In June 1994, permit holder Sharon A. Seifert reached an agreement to transfer the permit to Jeffrey K. Haynes.[4] The FCC approved the deal on January 18, 1995, and the transaction was consummated on February 22, 1995.[4]

The station changed call letters to the current WFXX on March 15, 1999.[1] After a series of delays, extensions, and permit renewals, WFXX finally received its license to cover on December 14, 1999.[5]

Jeffrey Haynes sold WFXX to Jeremy and Sarah Wolff's Fox Broadcasting Corporation, LLC for $600,000; the transaction was consummated on April 28, 2015.
