History[edit]

In August 1998, Fuller Broadcasting Company, Inc., reached an agreement to sell this station to Root Communications License Company, L.P., as part of a five-station deal.[3] The deal was approved by the FCC on October 5, 1998, and the transaction was consummated in December 1998.[4] Gary Fuller, president and CEO of Fuller Broadcasting Company from 1985 until he sold the company in December 1998, was elected mayor of Opelika, Alabama, in August 2004.[5]

In March 2003, Root Communications License Company, L.P., reached an agreement to sell this station to Qantum Communications subsidiary Qantum of Auburn License Company, LLC, as part of a 26 station deal valued at $82.2 million.[6] The deal was approved by the FCC on April 30, 2003, and the transaction was consummated on July 2, 2003.[7]

On May 15, 2014, Qantum Communications announced that it would sell its 29 stations, including WZMG, to Clear Channel Communications for WALK AM-FM in Patchogue, New York as part of the sale of the WALK stations to Connoisseur Media.[8] The transaction was consummated on September 9, 2014.

On December 15, 2015 WZMG changed their format to gospel, branded as "Hallelujah 910".[9]
