WOKI history on previous frequencies[edit source]

WOKI-FM, previously on the 100,000-watt 100.3 FM frequency (Oak Ridge, Tennessee license), began in the mid 1970s with a progressive rock format and automated programming pre-recorded by the DJs, but by the late 1970s had switched to a very successful Top-40 format mixed with some southern and hard rock, and live radio personalities. During the late 1970s WOKI-FM also carried University of Tennessee Volunteers football games and for two years sponsored the "Ramblin' Raft Race" on the Clinch River.
Meanwhile, WOKI broadcast on 1550 kHz on the AM dial with an adult contemporary format. WOKI became WORI and eventually ceased broadcasting altogether, while WOKI-FM after its switch to the Top-40 format was in heavy competition with WRJZ (620 AM), and later WIMZ (103.5 FM) for the Knoxville market's top rock station.
After the early 1980s WOKI dropped the hard and southern rock and sports, and became strictly a Top-40 pop station thru 1993, broadcasting as "FM 100", "Hits 100", and "I-100". The station became known as "The Hitkicker," in 1993 broadcasting a country format until 1997 when they briefly became “Outlaw Country 100.3” followed by a classic hits format, known as “Eagle 100”. In 1998 they changed to an Adult Album Alternative format as "100.3 The River", which was later "98.7 The River" when the WOKI call letters moved to 98.7.[citation needed] The 100.3 frequency is now occupied by WNOX, whose talk radio format moved to WOKI July 19, 2010; on July 7, 2010 Oak Ridge FM announced plans for WNOX to stay news/talk but with different hosts.[4]
WOKI's tower, while on 100.3, was located on Cross Mountain[5](elevation 3534 ft.) north of Briceville, Tennessee, and accordingly, its signal could be received throughout east Tennessee as well as
