WUBT (101.1 FM, "101.1 The Beat") is an American Urban contemporary radio station broadcasting in the Nashville, Tennessee market, under ownership of iHeartMedia, Inc.. Though the station is licensed to Russellville, Kentucky, its studios are located in Nashville's Music Row district and the transmitter site is in White House, Tennessee.
History of the 101.1 FM frequency
Beginning in 1965, the occupant of the frequency was licensed to Russellville, Kentucky, in Logan County. Since 1976, it was originally home to CHR/Top 40 formatted WAKQ, which later became a country music-formatted station, and eventually became WBVR-FM. The station was serving Bowling Green, but also attracting listenership in the Nashville radio market. On September 1, 1994, WBVR moved itself to a frequency of 96.7 MHz, a frequency in which was previously used by the now-defunct WMJM, and now licensed to Auburn, with offices located in Bowling Green along with its sister stations WUHU and WBGN. WBVR now focuses solely on the Bowling Green area.
The Jazzy 101 and Christian Contemporary years (1994–2001)
After WBVR's allocation move on the dial on September 1, 1994, the 101.1 frequency was sold to Clear Channel Communications (now part of iHeartMedia). A new radio station signed on at 101.1 MHz, which had the callsigns WJZC-FM, with Russellville, Kentucky remaining the official city of license, but began focusing more on the Nashville radio market, although the station still could be picked up in the Bowling Green area. From then until 2000, it was branded as "Jazzy 101" broadcasting a smooth jazz format. It later switched to a contemporary Christian music outlet, and being branded as "The One."
Since the switch to urban music, WUBT has become highly rated in the Nashville market, and also picked up good ratings in the Bowling Green radio market, as well as the Clarksville, TN/Hopkinsville, KY radio market.
The call letters were previously assigned to Chicago at 103.5 where it aired an urban oldies format. It only made a small dent in ratings with the exception of when they had legendary Chicago radio personality Larry Lujack doing a Saturday show. Lujack did the show from his house in New Mexico with his co-host, Matt McCann from the Chicago studio. The show was highly rated but the format changed and became KISS FM with a top 40 format.
In February 2014, the station's branding changed to "101.1 The Beat," thus dropping "Jamz" in the branding, still broadcasting the same format. The previous smooth jazz format returned to the station via an HD2 subchannel on their HD Radio signal.
