History of the 99.1 frequency 
The 99.1 frequency signed on as WLOD-FM in 1989, changing to the letters WNOX-FM in 1991. Formats included smooth jazz ("Double 99", simulcast with WNDD) and urban adult contemporary (X-99). Later WNOX-FM joined the 990 frequency of news/talk WNOX.
History of the 99.3 frequency 
WSBM played gospel music in 1979. WKJQ Q-99 was adult contemporary and WJFC-FM played country music. WNDD played smooth jazz along with WNOX-FM, with the two stations calling themselves "Double 99". Then WNDD played country again with the letters WUSK "US-99". As WEZG, the station was adult contemporary "Easy 99", then CHR "Electric 99", and country once again as "I-99", followed by oldies and Spanish.
