History

102.1 FM was known as WSEV-FM (co-owned with WSEV-AM 930 in Sevierville) in its early years and was automated. On December 2, 1987, the station started playing a mix of adult contemporary and country music as "U-102". Eventually, the station started playing adult contemporary exclusively.

WMYU and WWST frequency swap

On May 20, 1994, the station switched call letters to WMYU as Oldies 102. On that same date, sister station 93.1 FM changed to Star 93.1 FM with the call sign "WWST". On March 9, 2001, the two stations swapped frequencies moving the WWST call letters to 102.1 FM as Star 102.1 while the "WMYU" call letters were moved to 93.1 FM where they remained until late 2008.
