History

Originally WPMO-FM prior to 1988 and owned by Starr Broadcasting (Peter Starr-Pres). Changed to WKNN-FM and the "K99-FM" moniker in 1988 under the direction of its then new general manager, Bob Lima (WQID/WVMI Biloxi, Mississippi). Lima transferred within the company to Daytona, Fl in 1992 and current General Manager Reggie Bates was named to the post. Starr Broadcasting sold to Multi-Market Radio in 1994. A series of mergers including AM-FM and Capstar led to Clear Channel Communications acquiring the station in 2001. Clear Channel currently owns and operates the station along with sister stations WMJY, WBUV and WQYZ
