The meaning of «wlir-fm»

WLIR-FM (107.1 FM, Talkradio 107.1) is a radio station licensed to Hampton Bays, New York, and serving eastern Long Island. The station's transmitter is located in Northampton, Suffolk County, New York. WLIR-FM simulcasts the conservative talk radio format of WABC in New York City, and is owned and operated by Red Apple Media.

The station went on the air on November 14, 1980 as WWHB under the moniker "The New 107 FM WWHB", with an adult contemporary music format.[2] In 1984, Eddie Simon along with his brother, singer Paul Simon, purchased the station.[3][4] Its format then shifted to a Top 40/CHR format as "Laser Hot HB107." On September 1, 1990, WWHB began simulcasting AOR station WNEW-FM from New York City.

On December 7, 1996, the station became part of the Big City Radio trimulcast (and eventual quadcast) with other 107.1 stations in Briarcliff Manor, New York and northern New Jersey and later, the Lehigh Valley/Allentown, Pennsylvania area. WWHB and the other two multicast stations switched formats to country as "Y-107." The call sign was changed to WWVY on May 16, 1997, then to WWXY on March 22, 1999 (after 107.1 FM in Briarcliff Manor, New York changed from WWXY to WYNY).[5] On May 9, 2002, after a day of stunting with construction noises, the quadcast adopted a Tropical music format branded "Rumba 107."[6] The format was ill-suited to the quadcast suburban signals, and at the end of the year, Big City Radio filed for bankruptcy and sold the quadcast to Nassau Broadcasting, who broke up the quadcast and sold the individual stations.

Jarad Broadcasting picked up WWXY in April 2003.[7] 107.1 FM initially simulcasted WLIR (92.7 FM) from Garden City, New York, but in January 2004, 92.7 FM was purchased by Univision and flipped to Spanish language "Latino Mix" WZAA, simulcasting WCAA.[8] 107.1 FM then became a fully transplanted WLIR, taking on a modern rock format and the WLIR-FM call sign, turning into "THE BOX."[8] This format lasted until September 2005, when a smooth jazz/chill music format called "NeoBreeze" was adopted. This format was a failure, and the modern rock format returned in December 2005. In January 2008, the music ended and WLIR began simulcasting WEPN (ESPN Radio, 1050 AM) in a local marketing agreement.[9] WLIR was sold to Livingstone in 2011[10] and flipped to a Christian format branded as "Hope Radio."

On August 5, 2013, Livingstone Broadcasting shifted the "Hope Radio" Christian format to WBLI-HD2 along with translators 94.9 W235BB Hauppauge, New York; 96.5 W243BF Shirley, New York; 101.5 W268AN Plainview, New York and 104.5 W283BA Selden, New York. WLIR-FM dropped the Christian format and became "Champions Radio" touted as "Long Island's First & Only Sports Radio Station". WLIR-FM was broadcast on 107.1 and 96.9 W245BA in Suffolk County, New York. The format was short lived.[11]

On February 24, 2014, WLIR-FM dropped all sports programming and reverted to Christian formatted "Hope Radio."[12]
