The station originally signed-on in 1947 with the kHz.


On January 25, 2013, the station changed its callsign to WTZA. On January 31, 2013, after a brief simulcast with W233BF "Streetz 94.5", WGUN changed their format to urban oldies, branded as "Old School 1010".[4]

Again after a simulcast of 94.5 (broadcast range. It transmits at 99 watts instead of 250, to protect WRAS FM 88.5, which overlaps its 10.7MHz intermediate frequency centered on 88.6.

Originally applied-for during the Douglasville. Upon submitting the application for the broadcast license to cover that 130-watt permit, it again applied almost immediately to move east again to Mableton, still keeping Dallas as its supposed city of license, despite being even further away from there than the first two locations. Like other "translator" stations, it is trying to make small "skips" toward the city (and its primary demographic) through a series of "minor modifications". The change of W256BO on 99.1 to W255CJ on 98.9 was also required to allow for this.
