This is the sixth station history post on the blog.
Now here is the history of 97.5 which was a longtime easy listening station:
97.5 signed on in April 17, 1967 as WEZK-FM, a very popular easy listening station in Knoxville. Many of the voices on WEZK-FM and one of them was Jeff Jarnigan (currently heard on "B-97.5") who spoke the legal ID at the top of the hour in 1975. Paul Oscar Anderson was another jock at WEZK-FM who played easy listening records at the station. In its final years, WEZK-FM 97.5 was known as "EZ 97". In 1990, WEZK-FM 97.5 changed formats from easy listening to AC.
On September 24, 1994, WEZK-FM became WJXB-FM with soft rock as the new format. The station also became "B-97.5" which continues to this day. The station has evolved from a popular easy listening station to Knoxville's station for today's soft rock.
