History

The first radio station to broadcast in Cincinnati at 92.5 was WZIP, which signed on August 19, 1964. The format was jazz and news programming from CBS. The format changed to country in 1966. In 1971, the station was sold to Woody Sudbrink, and its call letters changed to WWEZ, with the format changing to beautiful music. This format lasted until 1991 when WWEZ began playing soft rock. A call letter change occurred February 2, 1992 to WIMJ, billed as "Magic 92."

WOFX-FM, "The Fox" began broadcasting on 94.9 July 22, 1988, replacing soft rock station WLLT. In 1994, a rival radio station to WOFX began at the 92.5 dial position, replacing WIMJ (Magic 92)'s soft rock format with a classic rock station dubbed "The Point," with the call sign of WPPT.
