History[edit]

WQBB started as a country outlet as WGUD, flipping to top 40 hits outlet as WXYK - 105.9 KISS FM until 1997 when 105.9 FM, 96.7 FM and 107.1 FM switched frequencies. KISS FM went to the 107.1 FM frequency. And then classic rock moved from the 96.7 FM frequency to the 105.9 FM frequency as Classic Rock 105.9 WXRG. As of 2006 105.9 became WHGO - 105.9 GO FM as classic hits. In 2009, It has since leaned back to a true Classic Rock format, and is once again known as Classic Rock 105.9.

On October 4, 2010 the station went off the air and was replaced by a Microsoft Sam voice reciting a countdown of the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until October 8, while interspersing a random movie quote or song lyric a few times each minute. This affected both the station's normal over-the-air frequency as well as its online stream.

On October 8, 2010 at 3:00 pm CDT, WHGO relaunched as an adult hits station, branded as "Bob 105.9" with a new call sign of WQBB.
