History

WHJY signed on March 14, 1966 as WHIM-FM, simulcasting 1110/WHIM, a country music station. The WHIM simulcast lasted through the 1970s until the FM station broke with the AM and became WHJY, "Joy 94", abeautiful music/easy listening station. At Midnight on September 4, 1981, the station flipped to album rock (the first station of its kind in the market), branded as "94 HJY". The first song on "94 HJY" was "Fire Down Below" by Bob Seger. Over the years, the station gradually shifted to its current format.
