On May 14th, 2004 at midnight, WOXY 97.7 signed off the air with a live version of "Sunday Bloody Sunday," the first song played when the station was launched in 1983 by Doug and wife Linda Balogh. Earlier in the year, the station was sold to Dallas based First Broadcasting Investment Partners for $5.6 million.

The station was one of the first six stations in the U.S. to play the alternative rock format. In 1988, it shot in popularity when Dustin Hoffman repeated the station's slogan "97X, bam, the future of rock and roll" in the movie Rain Man.

WOXY has been broadcasting over the internet since 1998; however, on February 6, 2006 they began charging for online streams due to a lack of advertising revenue. On August 31, 2006, they released a statement stating that they would completely shut down on September 15, 2006 due to financial problems.
On October 10, 2006, WOXY resumed online broadcasting after being purchased by Lala Media, Inc.
