History

WTWE was at 92.1 and licensed to Manning, South Carolina. The station later became WHLZ "Wheels 92.5," a country radio station, broadcasting at 100,000 watts. It was one of the biggest country stations in the Carolinas, with a signal from Lumberton, NC to Charleston, SC.

WHLZ moved closer to Charleston in 2003 and became hot adult contemporary WCSQ "Coast 92.5," while the country format and WHLZ letters moved to a smaller station licensed to Marion, South Carolina, near Florence.[2][3]

WCSQ then became WIHB "B-92" with its current CHR format.[citation needed]

In 2009, WIHB applied for a taller tower with power reduced to 77,000 watts.[1]

On Friday, March 19, 2010 "B-92" flips formats from CHR/Pop to Rhythmic Contemporary as "92-5 THE BOX." The new station features the Rickey Smiley Morning Show from 6:00am to 10:00am.

Call sign history

The station was assigned call sign WHLZ on 1986-03-01. On 2003-01-01, the station changed its call sign to WCSQ and again on 2005-09-21 to the current WIHB.[4]
