1. History

The station has been known since signing on in 1965 up to May 31, 2019 as WSOM, standing for "The W onderful S ound O f M usic". For decades, the station featured an adult standards format, including longtime Youngstown radio personalities Dick Thompson, Johnny Kay and Gary Rhamy.

WSOM changed to a Talk format on December 13, 2010, mostly carrying an all-syndicated lineup in contrast to sister station WPIC, one notable exception being a local afternoon show, Afternoons with Tracey and Friends. The station reverted to adult standards in September 2016, this time carrying programming from sister property Westwood Ones Americas Best Music. WSOM would change formats again, this time to classic country, on December 26, 2016.

                                     

1.1. History Change to WRQX

With Educational Media Foundations purchase of WRQX Washington, D.C., the WRQX callsign–retained by Cumulus in the deal–was transferred to WSOM in a callsign "parking" move on May 31, 2019, becoming WRQX. Concurrently, the WSOM letters moved to the former WRQX until new calls were selected for that facility; the latter station took the WLVW callsign the same day. In addition, WRQX removed all instances of "WSOM" from their branding and re-branded as "AM 600 WRQX," with updated imaging, logos and website domain.
