Station History

WNOK 1230 AM signed on in 1947 featuring local as well as national programing from the Mutual Radio Network. In the early 1950s WNOK had added a VHF TV station on Channel 67, eventually changing to Channel 19 by the early 60s (Eventually, WNOK-TV was sold off by 1977, becoming WLTX). Also, an FM station on 104.7 was added by the end of the 50s, which is where WNOK's call letters reside today.

During the 60's as well as the 70's, WNOK featured a Top 40 format. In 1980, the station changed over to brief Country and Disco formats under the call letters of WXAP. Neither format lasted more than 6 months and the WNOK call letters were reclaimed at the end of the year. The station eventually simulcasted parts of WNOK-FM's Top 40 (now known as CHR) format, although much of the remaining broadcast day was still automated under Adult Contemporary and CHR formats. By the fall of 1985, the automation was finally done away with and WNOK was simulcasting full-time with the FM.

In the fall of 1987, WNOK-AM dropped the simulcast, becoming an AOR/Classic Rock hybrid as "Rock 1230". However FM station WMFX signed on shortly afterwards with a similar format, taking away the station's potential audience. In September of 1988, the station became "Oldies 1230" under the WODE call letters featuring a Oldies format.

In the fall of that year, Price Broadcasting, then-owners of longtime Urban Contemporary outlet WOIC 1320 AM announced that they were dropping the call letters and format for a simulcast of sister FM WOMG.
