WXTG-FM is an Adult Album Alternative formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Virginia Beach, Virginia, serving the Southside of Hampton Roads. WXTG-FM is owned and operated by Davis Media, LLC.
WXTG-FM signed on in 2001 as WANN, but quickly became Mainstream Urban WWHV. WWHV's then owner, On Top Communications, went into bankruptcy in 2005.
WXTG-FM was bought by Red Zebra Broadcasting in 2007. The company had already owned 1490AM (also called WXTG) and decided to simulcast the two stations, with the FM signal used in station identifications and promos.
"102.1 The Game" carried most of the Fox Sports Radio lineup as well as all games of the Washington Redskins (like Red Zebra, owned by Daniel Snyder). The station had one local weekday show, The 757 Club, which is named for the region's area code. The hosts were John "Johnny D" Decandido and Bartley "Pretty Boy" Barefoot. Decandido was a former host on Fox Sports Radio, and Barefoot is a graduate of Old Dominion University.
On July 30, 2013, Red Zebra sold WXTG-FM and sister station WXTG to Williamsburg based Davis Media, LLC for $1.2 million; the sale was consummated on April 7, 2014. Davis Media, LLC owns Williamsburg-based WTYD and WBQK. On August 1, 2013, WXTG-FM began simulcasting WTYD.
