When then owner Griffin upgraded to a class C3 station in On July 17, 1995, its tower was moved closer to Atlanta on the 97.5 FM frequency and the format was changed to Mainstream Urban as "Hot 97.5". The call sign was changed to WHTA at this time.

On October 22, 2001, owner Radio One moved the radio format and the WHTA call letters to 107.9 as "Hot 107.9", and 97.5 became gospel "Praise 97.5" with the call sign WEGF. On December 5, 2001, the call sign was again changed to WPZE. In March 2007, WPZE began to carry the Yolanda Adams Morning Show based out of Houston via sister KROI-FM.

In February 2009, the Praise branding moved to 102.5 and WPZE changed to a simulcast of Majic 107.5. At this time the WAMJ call sign was moved to 107.5 FM to reunite with the "Majic" branding, the WPZE call sign was moved with the "Praise" format to 102.5 FM and 97.5 FM adopted the WUMJ call sign to go along with simulcast station WAMJ.[1][2]

In 2008 107.5 WJZZ Smooth Jazz had a low listener audience and lost all the sponsors for funding. It was sold to Radio One and became 107.5 WUMJ. It is now a R&B radio station.
