History

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 until April 1, 1999, 95.7 ran an alternative rock format as "96X", WRXQ.[2][3] 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.
