Station History

106.3fm signed on in October 1992.

WGRT-FM

We don't think 106.3fm actually used these call letters on the air.

WMXH-FM

We don't think 106.3fm actually used these call letters on the air.

WUBU-FM

In December 1992, Goodrich Broadcasting, Inc. sold WUBU for $300,000 to Partnership Radio, LLC. WUBU flipped formats from Urban AC to Smooth Jazz at Midnight on March 1, 2003, and flipped formats back to Urban AC in February 2006.
