History

In the early 90s, WJXY-FM played Country music. WSCA-FM signed on at 93.7 in Georgetown playing classic rock but later joined with WJXY-FM, changing its letters to WXJY. For a short time, WJXY-FM and WXJY were called "Cruisin' Country", with a format that included rock acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd. Late in the 90s the formats of WJXY-FM and WXJY changed to rhythmic, and the stations were called "Hot 93". Later the station moved in a mainstream CHR direction, and WSEA was added, so the stations were called "Hot 100 and Hot 93".

Sometime in the 2000s, WSEA was dropped, WIQB was added, and the format changed to all-sports.
