History[edit]

On May 6, 2013, at 10am, after promoting that morning that "WINK-FM will be a thing of the past", WINK-FM changed their format from hot adult contemporary to adult contemporary, branded as "96.9 More FM".[1] The first songs on More-FM were Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble".

In October 2015, it went back to 96.9 WINK FM branding and its format stayed adult contemporary.
