WHCC was the only radio station in Waynesville for many years. It went on the air with a formal opening September 10, 1947, operating on 1400 kHz with 250 W power. The station was licensed to Smoky Mountain Broadcasters, of which W. Curtiss Russ was president.
WMXF, WQNQ and WQNS were purchased by Clear Channel Communications now iHeartMedia, Inc. in 2001. The switch to talk was made in 2008, except for the morning show, which kept standards as part of the programming for a time.
WMXF-AM simulcasts WWNC-AM programming from Asheville.
The station also features local sports programming such as Tuscola High School football games.
