History

The station was assigned the call letters WWWO on 1986-01-16. On 1999-06-16, the station changed its call sign to the current WHTY.[2]

WMQX began in 1979 as WAXT "97 Country" was located in the building just east of a truck terminal "W.A.X.T building was most recently a bar called "The Last Round-Up" on West State Road 28 in Alexandria and was founded by Bellefontaine, Ohio-based Triplett Broadcasting which fell into bankruptcy in the mid-1980s prompting the sale of the station.

WMXQ (as WWWO with a rock format) began as a construction permit for a Hardford City FM station in the late 1960s but never came on the air initially due the financial difficulties of the former WBMP in Elwood (now WIKL) which was to have founded that station, hence it remained dormant (and silent) until 1986.

On July 13, 2009 WHTY and WHTI changed their call letters to WMXQ and WMQX, respectively, to go with their "Max" branding.
