  • 1/2006: License to cover granted for COL change to Charlotte.
  • 12/2005: Construction permit granted for COL license change from Jackson to Charlotte with slight change to technical specs (50,000 watts @ 489 feet to 49,000 watts @ 496 feet).
  • 2004: Proposal filed with the FCC to change community of license from Jackson to Charlotte. The proposal is part of a series of applications that includes sister station FM 92.7 moving its city of license from Charlotte to Grand Ledge and AM 1390 moving from Charlotte to Holt, leaving Charlotte without its 'local' radio service. The WJXQ proposal to modify the FM table of allotments would essentially backfill the potential changes to AM 1390 and FM 92.7 to allow the FCC to grant the proposed changes.
  • 7/12/2000: Sale from 62nd Street Broadcasting to Rubber City is approved.

  • 3/11/1981: Power increase to 50,000 watts from 20,000 and transmitter moves from near Jackson to near Springport, giving the station good coverage of Lansing and Battle Creek. Call sign changes to WJXQ as 'Q-106' and the station's automated format switches to live but remains rock/top-40.
  • 1976: Simulcast of WKHM AM ends and station takes on rock/top-40 format as WJOX.
  • 19xx: As WKHM, sister station was WKHM 970 AM. New WKHM-FM at 105.3 was created later. Station's transmitter was located near Jackson and the station did not reach the Lansing area.
