History

The station first signed on in 1976 as WKZY-FM, playing beautiful music and then evolving into an adult contemporary format as "Z97", and then back to beautiful music. On April 26, 1982, the call letters were changed to WGLQ, and the format became CHR as "The Rhythm of the Great Lakes." Magic 97 was a "live-assist" station with TM Programming's Stereo Rock format for a time, then converted to fully local programming in the late 1980s. The format has cycled back and forth between mainstream and Adult Top 40 over the years. Current staff includes TJ Ryan, Mike Junior, News Director Jack Hall, PD Jay Fisher and Sportsguy Ron Plumb
