History[edit]

Prior to the switch to urban gospel, it has most recently carried an oldies format as Oldies 95.7 WOTO until 2003. From December 1993 – 1999, 95.7 ran an Alternative Rock format as "96X" WRXQ.[2] The Alternative format was later revived at WMFS in 2000 as "93X" and then again at WIVG in 2012, which also brought back WRXQ's "Never Blend In" chameleon logo.
