Station History

1470 signed on in 1954 as WOIC and became WQXL in 1956 after the station was sold to new ownership. The WOIC call-sign resurfaced that same year on 1320 AM (now WISW). WQXL originally signed on with a Big Band format, which eventually gave way to a Top 40 format by the end of the decade. However it was handicapped with a daytime-only signal and was unsuccessful in competing against format rivals WNOK and WCOS, which each had full-time signals. WQXL switched to Country in the Summer of 1966, but again was bested by WCAY, which also had a full-time signal. In 1973, the station switched to Religious programming and eventually adopted a Contemporary Christian format. WISW is a news-talk radio station in Columbia, South Carolina. ...
