The station went on the air as WDEA-FM on December 27, 1965. On August 25, 1983, the station changed its call sign to the current WWMJ. The station flipped from WDEA's full service format to Adult Contemporary and remained in that format until flipping to oldies and changing its moniker to Magic 95.7. .[2] Until Christmas 2005 the station was an oldies formatted station, known as Magic 95.7. The station also picked up New England Patriots football, after WFZX's contract ended. WWMJ was also an affiliate of Imus in the Morning until his show was cancelled after Don Imus' comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.
