History

In 1987, Cathy Hughes purchased WMMJ and changed the format from easy listening to Urban Oldies as, "Majic 102.3". The station has basically maintained this format for 18 years with it skewing its format more toward the 25-54 demographic as an Urban Adult Contemporary. During that time, Majic 102.3 has become synonymous with its Urban Oldies format in the African-American community. Majic has consistently been one of the market's leaders delivering Washington's most loyal audience. In 1999, WMMJ acquired the syndication rights of the Tom Joyner Morning Show from rival Urban AC, WHUR, and has maintained it ever since. In the summer of 2008, it also became home to Mo'Nique in the afternoon until March 2009.
