History[edit]

WWFA/102.7 Kiss FM[edit]

WWFA signed on the air August 29, 2010 with a wall-to-wall Adult Album Alternative format with no station imaging except for a top-of-hour Legal ID.[2]

This was merely a placeholder format for the station until it made its actual premiere on Friday evening, October 29, 2010 with a CHR/Top 40 format as 102.7 Kiss FM, taking on competitor Star 94 WMSR-FM.[3] The station launched with the syndicated Elvis Duran and the Morning Show in mornings, On-Air With Ryan Seacrest middays, and Mike "TicTak" Brandt in afternoons.

In August 2015, the station dropped Elvis Duran in mornings for a locally hosted show by station Program Director and afternoon host, TicTak.
