History[edit]

On April 7, 2011, WZOW changed their call letters to WSSM and changed their format from classic rock to oldies, branded as "The Stream". Programming on WSMM/WSSM came from Westwood One Local's Classic Hits/Pop format.

WSMM/WSSM also played continuous Christmas music during the holiday season. The station changed their call sign back to the former WZOW on December 19, 2013 and changed their callsign back to WSSM on June 11, 2014.

On October 10, 2016, the station switched to a classic rock format, branded as "Rock 97.7", and changed their callsign to WYXX.[3] They also picked up The Bob & Tom Show which had been dropped a week before by WQLQ when it switched to a CHR format.
