History[edit]

WSBM played gospel music in 1979. WKJQ Q-99 was adult contemporary and WJFC-FM played country music. WNDD played smooth jazz along with WNOX-FM, with the two stations calling themselves "Double 99". Then WNDD played country again with the letters WUSK "US-99". As WEZG, the station was adult contemporary "Easy 99", then CHR "Electric 99", and country once again as "I-99", followed by oldies and Spanish.
