History[edit]

WMNX signed on in 1981 on 95.9 MHz. By 1982, it was carrying an automated country format. In 1988, the callsign changed to WTMG.

In 1991, WTMG moved up 200 kHz to 96.1, which afforded it a class change from A to C2 and a much stronger signal. The callsign was changed to WHBX to accompany the new facility. Cumulus acquired WBZE and WHBX in 1997 for $15.4 million.
