103.7 FM Maysville
WBIC > WPUP > WXKT
103.7 FM was first assigned the call sign WBIC on January 4, 1989. On March 2, 1990, the call sign was then changed to WPUP. The station was known as "Rock 103.7" for many years, before returning to the "Bulldog" name it had in the mid to late 1990s. Since the transmitter is located in Royston, it made the station's signal south of Athens marginal.
The station was sold to Cox Radio in August 2008, which moved WPUP to 100.1 and changed 103.7 to the current callsign WXKT. The stations simulcast the "Bulldog" format for a little over a year; WPUP remains on 100.1 FM licensed to Watkinsville as top-40 station "Power 100.1".
On August 1, 2009 at 8 AM, WXKT flipped to news/talk.
Atlanta-based news/talk station WSB AM 750 upgraded to FM simulcast (WSBB-FM 95.5) in August 2010, which resulted in improved coverage in the Gainesville area; Cox deemed the news/talk format on 103.7 as redundant and on December 6, 2011 at 6 AM, the station announced a new format for 103.7: the mornings consisted of North Georgia's Morning News hosted by Tim Bryant and Martha Zoller's talk show; at noon, Jim Rome's sports radio show aired; 3-6 PM, America's Radio News handled programming; and Yahoo! Sports Radio did overnights.
On May 25, 2012 WXKT flipped from news/talk/sports to adult hits, branded as "103.7 Chuck FM".
