History[edit]

The station went on the air in the 1970s as the easy-listening WZEZ. The station has, for a number of years now, adhered to a "light rock" (or adult contemporary) format aimed primarily at female listeners.[citation needed] It features a mixture of current hits with some tracks from fairly recent years. As of December 2013 the station is, by a factor of two, the most listened to radio station in Nashville.[2]

It was announced on May 28, 2014, that Midwest Communications will purchase 9 of the 10 Stations owned by South Central Communications. (This includes WJXA & Sister Station WCJK) With this purchase, Midwest Communications will expand its portfolio of stations to Evansville, Knoxville and Nashville.[3] The sale was finalized on September 2, 2014, at a price of $72 million.[4]

Jingle packages[edit]

Mix 92.9 used all of their own jingle packages from Reelworld and has now moved on to Reelworld ONE AC with their WJXA logo.
