The station had controversial morning hosts Star and Buc Wild—which replaced Russ Parr in the morning slot. Parr's show has since returned to WQBT's morning drive time slot, but as of 2012, it is now home to Steve Harvey.

History

former logo

Before the mid-1970s, the station was a simulcast of WTOC (AM), and had the callsign of WTOC-FM. Before it was an Urban Contemporary formatted station, it had a long stint as a country music formatted station to compete with daytimer WEAS. In the late '80s and early '90s, the callsign WCHY was part of the station's identity as a country station ("WCHY 94.1 Continuous Country"; the station would sometimes refer to itself as "Y-94".), thus the callsign's creation, as at that time it stood for We're Country Hits Y'all.

WCHY (AM) and WCHY-FM were sold by Roth Broadcasting in 1995 to WP Radio, which in turn was selling its stations to Patterson Broadcasting as WP Radio left the business.[1]

Later, this station was WSCA-FM - "Cat Country 94."
