Originally, this station was called WBUY. In 1984, when co-owned WLXN-FM became WKOQ, the AM became WLXN and played Southern gospel and later soft adult contemporary music; then WLXN changed to news/talk.
On November 19, 2014 WLXN rebranded as "Majic 99.9". The station has also switched from Kool Gold to Tom Kent's 24/7 FUN. Max McGann and Ralph Shaw continued hosting the morning show until August 2015. The AM tower moved to the northern part of Davidson County, and the FM translator received a signal increase. In January 2016, Willie Edwards and Corie Odden took over the morning show. Following Odden's departure in mid-2016, Leanne Petty joined Edwards on Majic Mornings in October.
