Wayne County's first radio station went on the air in January 1970, with studios located upstairs above Helton's Drug Store. The song "Orange Blossom Special" was the first song played on what was then the new 1480 WAAN radio. That first record was played by beloved former announcer and singer Neal "Tywhop" Jones.
In the mid-1970s the station changed hands and Grand Ole Opry members Ernie Ashworth and Ralph Davis became the owners for a brief period, along with Carl Swafford. In between the call letters WAAN and WTNR was the call letters WNBG.
Aside from past owner Ernie Ashworth of Grand Ole Opry fame, country singer, actor, writer, and Waynesboro native Mark Collie also got his start on AM 930. Mark became a popular country music star. Also in the eighties and early nineties country singer Jacky Ward was also an announcer. "Wile Willie" as he was called on the air, had success on the country charts with his hit "Big Blue Diamond". ("Wile" as in Wile E. Coyote of the "Roadrunner" cartoons.)
In July 1991, a new chapter in broadcasting began when WTNR-FM went on the air featuring hot new country music. AM 930 even simulcast the FM station until going all talk with syndicated talk shows. In 1994 the stations were sold to Ohio Broadcasting, and following a sign of the times, the FM was moved in 1998 to Florence, Alabama. This left AM 930 in Waynesboro, as WTNR-FM became Froggy 94, and then The River 94. It now is joined by Wayne County's other FMs, all moving to Florence, leaving AM 930 as the only Wayne County radio station.
WTNR-AM 930 continued as a talk station until August 3, 2000 when the station was sold again and changed its call letters and format to AM 930 WWON (W1) "Familiar Favorites." The station continued a great tradition of "Hometown Radio" providing Wayne County with local news, weather, and sports broadcasts.
In November 2004, Wayne County Community Radio, the parent company of WWON, entered into a time-brokerage agreement with New Mind Broadcasting LLC, with the option for New Mind to purchase the station a year later. However, New Mind Broadcasting, (due to FCC technical issues at WWON) was unable to finalize the purchase terms of the agreement, and due to circumstances beyond their control AM 930 W-WON went dark in August 2005.
Six months after WWON went silent, Huntingdon, Tennessee, residents Chris and Karen Lash returned WWON to the air, purchasing the station in February 2006. The Lashes quickly returned AM 930 to its country roots when Legends 930 W-WON was born. The station featured classic country, local, national and statewide news every hour. An interactive, and updated website with local news headlines was re-started, and coverage of Wayne County Wildcat sports, and the addition of the Tennessee Titans was added to the programming line-up.
Also new to the radio station and county was a monthly newspaper, direct-mailed to homes in Waynesboro. The Advisor, Waynesboro's Hometown News and Shopper began, giving Waynesboro and the county positive stories of the people, places and things relative to the local community.
On January 8, 2007, the station changed its name, and added current country songs to its rotation, in response to a web-based poll of its listeners. The station was then known as "AM 930 The Farm". The station is an affiliate of the Tennessee Titans radio network. On April 20th, 2008 WWON was sold to Small Potatoes Broadcasting, LLC based in Nashville, TN. The new owners flipped the format to true oldies, calling the station Big Oldies 930.
