History[edit]

In 1994, WWSN was a country station called "The Hawk". Regent Communications moved the WHKW letters from 103.9 to a new dial position at 107.7.[1][2] The station became known as WSFR and aired a classic rock format.

On October 28, 2011 WSFR relaunched its classic rock format as "107.7 The Eagle", billing themselves as "Louisville Classic Hits".[3][4]

On July 20, 2012, Cox Radio, Inc. announced the sale of WSFR and 22 other stations to Summit Media LLC for $66.25 million. The sale was consummated on May 3, 2013.[5][6]
