History[edit]

WSCA-FM signed on at 93.7 in Georgetown playing classic rock but later joined with WJXY-FM, changing its letters to WXJY.[citation needed] As WJXY's simulcast partner, WXJY was "Cruisin' Country", with a mix of country and rock music,[2] then rhythmic as "Hot 93".[3] Hot 93 changed to contemporary hit radio and added WSEA as a simulcast partner.[citation needed] Then WJXY-FM, WXJY and WIQB became ESPN Radio affiliates as "The Team" in 2003.[4]

WXJY changed its simulcast partner to WSEA in July 2010, changing its format to contemporary hit radio.[5]

WXJY once again simulcast WJXY. In 2013, the station aired a Southern rock/country music format called "The Outlaw".[6][7]

On September 20, 2016 Cumulus' Joule Broadcasting announced that WJXY/WXJY will be sold to Colonial Radio Group for $240,000.[8]

On February 9, 2017 WXJY changed simulcast partners from WJXY to WMIR and changed their format to urban gospel, branded as "Rejoice 93.7".[9]
