From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

WIQB is a sports talk formatted radio station in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, which airs the same programming as WJXY and WXJY.

History

WJXY signed on in Conway, South Carolina, as a daytime-only Country music station in the 1970s. An FM frequency at 93.9 was added around 1990, at which time the AM switched to southern gospel. In 1995, the format changed to adult standards, with most of the music coming from the AM Only satellite format. By this time the station had a limited nighttime signal.

In Fall 1999, Hurricane Floyd damaged WJXY's transmitter site and forced several other co-owned stations to move to new studios. WJXY was off the air for several months.

The station was assigned the WIQB call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on November 16, 2000.[1] For a time WIQB aired the same programming as oldies WSYN.
