History

Prior to Cox Enterprises buying the station in 1999, the station was a Contemporary Christian outlet. But after the sale that same year it flipped to Dance Top 40 as "95.3 Party" and became a success in the market with its mix of Dance and Hip-Hop product. But by 2004 they would start phasing Dance product out for more Hip-Hop fare and relaunched itself as "POWER 95.3".

WPYO is also one of three stations in the market competing for listeners in the 12-17 and 18-34 age demo range. Rhythmic-leaning-Mainstream Urban rival WJHM and Mainstream Top 40 WXXL are the other two.
