History

AM 1280 was Middle-of-the-road formatted WDSU-AM and was the sister station to WDSU-TVmarker and WDSU-FM until the radio stations were sold in 1972. The AM became WGSO with an Adult Contemporary format. On December 21, 1985 the station switched to R&B Oldies as WMKJ, "Majic 1280". On July 22, 1987 it switched to Top 40 as "13-Q" under the WQUE call sign. Soon thereafter, became a simulcast of WQUE-FM after the station evolved to R&B.

In the early 1990s they tried a News/Talk format, but it was a failure. On February 1, 1996 they flipped to an All-Blues format as WODT, and although it was successful ratings-wise, it wasn't a moneymaker. They would drop that format in October 2003 for sports/talk programing from Fox Sports, ESPN Radio and The Jim Rome Show. WODT was the flagship station of the New Orleans Hornets radio network from 2003-2006. Hornets radio color analyst Gerry Vaillancourt hosted a popular afternoon sports talk call-in show from May 2004 - December 2006. The sports format ran for almost five years. The station's final sports-era legal ID was an homage both to the station's small, but loyal following, and to the Jim Rome Show; it contained a frequent Rome Show sign-off clip ("I think what I'm supposed to say is, 'Thank you. I'm out.'") On June 25, 2008, WODT switched to its current format -- complimenting the similar format of sister station WYLD-AM. Currently, there is no air staff.
