History of the 102.3 Frequency

The station started as WHYL-FM airing a simulcast of WHYL, an AM station housed in the same building.

On December 31, 1979, the call sign changed to WZUE and was branded as "Zoo 102". The WZUE calls were short-lived as the call sign reverted back to WHYL-FM on October 14, 1981, branded as "Country 102."

On April 26, 2002, the call sign was changed to WRKZ-FM (which is now a station in Columbus, Ohio). It began as a simulcast of WCAT-FM, which belonged to a different frequency in the same market (106.7), and branded itself as "Cat Country 106.7" (it is currently WMHX). After a brief period, WRKZ-FM flipped formats to all-80s and re-branded itself as "Z102.3."

Another format change came shortly thereafter when WCAT-FM, on 106.7, changed its call sign to WCPP and changed its format to Top 40. The WCAT-FM call sign was then given to 102.3, the format changed to country, and it became the current "Red 102.3."
