Station History

WNOK-FM signed on the air July 15, 1959, simulcasting much of WNOK-AM's programming which consisted of Pop Standards. During the 1960s, WNOK-FM broke off simulcasting when WNOK-AM went Top 40 and went to the Beautiful Music format. Beginning in the mid 70's, the station gradually became more contemporary with something of an Adult Contemporary format. The Station went full blown Top 40 in December 1976 as "Stereo 105" and was largely automated. This move proved to be a wise decision as the station enjoyed huge ratings for the remainder of the 70's and into the 80's.

By 1980, the automation was done away with, replaced with a live airstaff and the station's name became simply "105 WNOK". By early 1984, the station became "104.7 WNOK", which became the first station in Columbia to adopt their digital frequency as part of their name.

The station is owned by Clear Channel Communications, which also owns Country WCOS-FM, Urban WXBT, Variety Hits WLTY, News/Talk WVOC, and Sports/Talk WCOS in the Columbia radio market.
