Delta Radio's history can be traced to 1991, when Larry Fuss purchased what was then WRDC-AM and WQAZ-FM in Cleveland. The stations had been through ... See more a string of several owners and were off-air when Fuss bought them. The facilities of WQAZ-FM were rebuilt, renamed WDTL-FM, and went on-air on March 16, 1992. The station's Country format, featuring Jim Gregory in the morning, quickly became the most popular radio station in the area. In 1993, Delta Radio purchased WKZB-FM/95.3 in Drew, moved the station to Cleveland, renamed it WOHT-FM ("HOT95") and launched an Urban Contemporary format. WRDC-AM was renamed WDSK-AM, its original call-letters from 1953, and returned to the air in 1995 with an all-talk format. WZYQ-FM/101.9, known as "Star-101.9" was built as a new station in 1996 and featured an Adult Contemporary format. On November 1, 2003, all four stations were sold to MRS Ventures, Inc. of Tyler, Texas. All four have since ceased operation. WKXY-FM signed on in April 2003 as a low-power station in Clarksdale, Mississippi. For over five years, WKXY simulcast the programming of WROX-AM 1450 in Clarksdale. In November 2007, Delta Radio applied to move WKXY-FM from Clarksdale to Merigold, Mississippi, a small community about four miles north of Cleveland. The FCC granted the application on April 2, 2008, and construction started soon thereafter. The new WKXY-FM signed on November 8, 2008, broadcasting with a power of 6000 watts. New studio facilities were constructed at the Valley Court Square office complex in Cleveland, the original home of WDTL-FM/92.9. The broadcast tower, located near Mound Bayou, Mississippi, was formerly utilized by WZYQ-FM/101.9.
