Notes/History:

  • 9/2008: Fox Sports Radio replaces ESPN Radio and station repositions again as 'The Fan'.
  • 3/2007: Station repositions as ESPN 1660 as WQLR call sign moves from FM 106.5 Kalamazoo where the calls had resided since FM 106.5 first signed on.
  • 3/2006: FCC approves Midwest Communications acquisition of WQLR, WKZO, and WQSN from Fairfield Broadcasting
  • 1/2006: Announced that Fairfield Broadcasting has sold its Kalamazoo stations (WQLR-FM 106.5, WKZO-AM 590, WKLZ-AM 1470, WQSN-AM 1660) to Midwest Communications for $13.25 million pending FCC approval and closing. WKLZ 1470 will go off-air and is not included in sale.
  • October 1998: WQSN moves from 1470 AM to the expanded AM band at 1660 AM. The 1470 frequency picks up the call sign WKLZ for the second time after WKLZ-FM 98.9 Petoskey agrees to change its call sign from WKLZ to WKLZ-FM. 1470 and 1660 simulcast the sports format for a time before 1470 WKLZ became a talk station.
