AM 1490 WFXY
WFXY signed on in 1969, with the call letters WAFI at 1560 kHz. Programming included a full-service format with pop and country music. In the late 1970s, the station moved to a full-time Top 40 format and changed to the current frequency in order to add nighttime service.
Currently, WFXY broadcasts from a tower site on Bloomsbury Avenue in Middlesboro, 24 hours per day. In 1977 the station frequency and call letters were changed; WAFI at 1560 kHz became WFXY at 1490 kHz. A few months later, WFXY moved its tower and transmitter from a location off US-25E to its present location.
In 2011 WFXY AM was acquired by Penelope, Inc. from Country-Wide Broadcasters and simulcasted the country music format with sister station WANO AM Pineville, KY which was purchased in 2010. After new studios were relocated, WFXY AM changed the music format to “The Classics” bringing back THE ORIGINAL “FOXY RADIO” music station brand..
