Station History

The station originally signed on in 1976 as WORG-FM, the sister FM to WORG-AM, targeting Orangeburg with a Adult Contemporary format. The station remained with the same format until 1989 when it changed formats to Top 40 as WKSO with the moniker of 103.9 Kiss-FM. This format lasted until 1990. The WORG call letters eventually resurfaced on a new FM station licensed to the nearby community of Elloree. Adult contemporary music, frequently abbreciated to just AC, is a type of radio format that plays mainstream and pop music, without hip-hop or rap since, as per the name, it is geared more towards adults than teens. ... Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ...


During the 90's, the station had various Urban Contemporary formats, including a period where the station simulcasted with WKWQ (now WZMJ) in the Columbia radio market. By June of 1999, the station had made a long-planned move into the Columbia market, becoming WHXT with the Hot 103.9 moniker. The station was the first serious challenger to WWDM's long-standing dominance in the Urban Contemporary format, eventually beating them in the Arbitron ratings on several occasions. In 2003, the station was acquired by WWDM's owner, Inner City Broadcasting. The term urban contemporary was coined by the late New York DJ Frankie Crocker in the mid 1970s. ... WWDM, also known as The Big DM 101 FM, is an Adult Urban Contemporary station licensed by the FCC to Sumter, South Carolina at 101. ... Arbitron is a radio audience research company in the United States. ...
