...about 100.3

100.3 FM came to prominence in East TN back in 1974 as Johnny Pirkle debuted WOKI-FM Oak Ridge. The morning DJ was King in the Morning who previously worked mornings at WNOX 990. Other jocks included Dave Lambert, Jack Bean, Mike Beverly, and JL Meyers. The station was an early precursor of voice tracking.

Flash forward to 1980 and WOKI was now live 24/7...the DJ line up was Michael Henry Martin 6-10a, Gary Adkins (PD) 10-noon, Larry Mazzeti noon-3p, Mike Beverly 3-7p. Brother John 7p-12a, and The Brothers at midnight. 

These days the dial position is owned by SummitMedia and is monikered as 100.3 The Wolf. The groovy call letters are WCYQ. 

DJs are Bobby Bones 6-10, Dana Lunden 10a-3p, Opie Joe 3-7p, and B-Dub 7p-12a. Opie Joe aka Brian Creason is the Program Director. 

The original call letters (WOKI) are now occupied at NewsTalk 98.7!
