Station History

98.3 signed on as WCNA in April, 1987 with an Easy Listening format. It became WSLT in 1993 with a Adult Contemporary format under the handle "Lite 98.3".

In February 2006, the station dropped the AC format and aired a loop of a brief snippet of Gorillaz's "Feel Good Inc" (the laughing heard in the beginning and end of the song) nonstop for 24 hours. When the stunt ended, "HD98.3" was born with a CHR format, filling the void left when the former WZNY flipped to Country as WIBL a little more than a year previous.
