WFZX (1490 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic hits music format. Licensed to Anniston, Alabama, USA, the station serves the Anniston-Oxford Metropolitan Area. The station is currently owned by
The Jeff Beck Broadcasting Group, LLC.
The station is unusual in that very few AM radio stations in the US are permitted to rebroadcast their programming on an FM translator. WFZX is especially unusual in that announced on-air branding as "104.3" derives from the 104.3 FM frequency of the translator, not the primary radio station at 1490 AM.
Owned by Cary L. Graham and Edwin Estes, the Anniston Radio Company opened WANA in 1954, taking over the 1490-kHz 250-watt FCC assignment previously used by Anniston station WOOB. Within a short time, Graham gained full ownership.
Joe A. Bundy was an early employee of WANA, working his way up to become station manager. When Graham died, his will decreed that Bundy would receive the property. On August 4, 1987, the FCC approved the license to be transferred to Joe A. Bundy and Ann H. Bundy.
In June 2000, Anniston Radio Company reached an agreement to sell this station to Dewey D. Lankford for a reported sale price of $175,000. At the time of the sale, WANA broadcast a Southern Gospel music format. The deal was approved by the FCC on July 10, 2000, and the transaction was consummated on July 17, 2000.
In January 2006, Jacobs Broadcast Group Inc. reached an agreement to purchase WANA from Dewey D. Lankford. The station sold for a reported $330,000. At the time of the sale, WANA broadcast a mixed Urban Christian Contemporary/Gospel music format. The deal was approved by the FCC on March 3, 2006, and the transaction was consummated on May 1, 2006.
Under the new ownership, until May 2008 the station had been sports radio formatted WANA, known on-air as "Sports Radio 1490 The Ticket."
In May 2008, the station announced it would change its call letters to WSYA and that by the end of May it would be broadcasting a Soft Adult Contemporary music format, simulcast on an FM translator in Anniston. The station was assigned the WSYA call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on May 23, 2008. WSYA began broadcasting on 104.3 FM (Anniston, AL) and on 99.1 FM (Oxford, AL) on April 20, 2009. The station featured the syndicated The Bob and Sheri Show until early 2011, then it begin featuring the syndicated show The Rick and Bubba Show in the morning as well as Deliliah in the evening, until it changed formats. The station's call letters and branding were previously used by WMXS in Montgomery, Alabama, which used the WSYA call letters and was known as "Sunny 103" from 1987 to 1994.
On May 28, 2012 WFZX changed their format to classic hits, branded as "The Fox".
On September 5, 2012 WFZX, along with its sister station WTDR, were sold to Jeff Beck, owner of The Jeff Beck Broadcasting Group, LLC.
