This is the eleventh station history post.
This time, I will be posting a history of 93.1 which was once home to “Star 93.1”, a good CHR station with Toddzilla heard nightly.
93.1 signed on the air in 1989 as WCKS, a soft AC station known as “The New 93 Kiss FM”. The station played the best of the 60s, 70s, and today at the time. The station even played some classic rock music during their time as “93 Kiss FM”.
On December 5, 1990, WCKS became WWZZ with a CHR format as “Z-93”. For a short time, “Z-93” was an active rock station. They played country music before they went back to CHR just a few months later. On May 23, 1991, WWZZ became WWST along with a new name “Star 93.1”. The station featured a lot of good jocks including one who was a DJ at WKSF in Asheville, North Carolina and it was Toddzilla who does evenings at “Star 102.1”.
On February 9, 2001, WWST swapped frequencies with WMYU. While WWST moved to 102.1 with the “Star 102.1” name, WMYU moved to 93.1 with the “Oldies 93.1” name. The station played oldies as “Oldies 93.1” from 2001 until 2003. That year, WMYU changed formats from oldies to hot AC as “93.1 The Point”. The hot AC is still around today and 93.1 will be remembered as a great top 40 station.
