History

The original WLJY and it's 106.5 FM frequency first went on the air on 10/22/1979. However, on 2006-08-01 WLJY changed its call sign and frequency to the current 96.7 FM swapping with sister station WYTE which now occupies the 106.5 frequency.[3]

On December 27, 2011 WLJY changed their format to contemporary hits branded as "HOT 96-7".[4] As part of its launch to the new CHR format, the station announced through a series of short on-air sweepers that, "HOT 96-7 is commercial free through the New Year" and proceeded to play non-stop, commercial free top 40 music for over 10 consecutive days, first airing commercials on the evening of January 6.

Personalities and programs

As a result of the station's December 2011 format change to CHR, the previously heard local and national personalities are no longer there. When branded and formatted as "Mix 96-7", programming included on air personalities Eric Westphal from 6am-10am, Jen O'Dell from 10am-3pm, Ryan Seacrest from 3pm-7pm and John Tesh from 7pm-Midnight and Dave Farmbrough and Woody weekends. The station also featured a Saturday "'80s Rewind" feature program which contained all '80s music from 10am-10pm every Saturday, a program feature that has been dropped in keeping with the all-hit ("HOT 96-7") format.

Other programs previously heard on the "Mix" 96-7 format included "American Top 40 Countdown w/ Ryan Seacrest", Backtraxx USA with Kidd Kelly and "Intelligence For Your Life" with John Tesh. The American Top 40 w/ Ryan Seacrest program continues to run on the HOT format on Saturday mornings. The station's website, www.hot967fm.com, exists as a static page currently with links to the station's Facebook and listener information data form to collect text messaging information likely for future promotion(s).

In January 2012, the station call letters were changed from WLJY-FM to WHTQ-FM as reflected in its on-air legal ID and Facebook contact information.
