Station History

106.3 originally signed on in 1989 as WNMX in Newberry. The station featured an Adult Contemporary format under the name "Mix 106". Over time, the station adjusted itself toward CHR under the name "Hot Mix 106.3", with a light dose of Alternative Rock music. It was the intent to move the station into the Columbia radio market, but the plans to do so never materialized. Ratings for the station during this time were extremely poor.

For a time, the station actually did very well, but listenership started to drop as the audience started to drift back to the area's other country stations. In early 1995, WNMX was issued a C&D letter from WBUB, another Country station in Charleston that was using the "Bubba" moniker and had trademarked the name in South Carolina.
