History

Prior to October 2007, the 100.9 frequency was home to WYJZ, a smooth jazz format.

On October 8, 2007, the "Radio Now" format was dropped from the 93.1 frequency (then owned by Emmis Communications, when it switched to Christmas music in advance of picking up the talk format from sister WIBC, which in turn was moving from AM 1070 to clear a spot for sports radio WFNI in December 2007.

On October 10, 2007, then WYJZ dropped its smooth jazz format and picked up the contemporary hit radio format of WNOU. Radio One purchased the intellectual property of WNOU including its "Radio Now" branding, format and logo which were all installed on 100.9 FM. Radio One management claimed that they will offer the displaced staffers of the original WNOU the first chance of joining the station's lineup, and will use the same imaging as the former 93.1.

The last song played on "RadioNow 93.1" was "When You're Gone" by Avril Lavigne. The first song played on "RadioNOW 100.9" was "Bartender" by T-Pain and Akon.

On October 31st, 2007, WYJZ picked up the WNOU call sign completing the "move" of "Radio Now" to 100.9.
