History (Edited from Wikipedia)

WAMJ (107.5 FM, "Majic 107.5/97.5") is licensed to Roswell, Georgia, and serves Metro Atlanta with an urban adult contemporary radio format, simulcasting with sister station 97.5 WUMJ in Fayetteville. The station is owned by Radio One. The studios and offices are located inside the Centennial Tower building in downtown Atlanta, and the transmitter is on Goshen Springs Road in the Gwinnett Village section of Norcross, near Interstate 85. It has an effective radiated power of 18,000 watts horizontal and 33,000 watts vertical, from a tower 607 feet above average terrain.

WAMJ’s HD2 subchannel broadcasts urban oldies music, known as "Classix 102.9", and is rebroadcast on a 125 watt FM translator W275BK at 102.9 MHz in Decatur.

Weekdays, Majic begin with the nationally syndicated "Steve Harvey Morning Show." Jackie Paige is heard middays, Ryan Cameron afternoons, Beasy Baybie 7-10 at night.


Original WAMJ

The station is the result of Docket 80-90 reducing the required spacing between FM stations, and permitting a new FM station in the Atlanta area on 107.5. The original call sign was WTHA when the construction permit was issued at the beginning of October 1996. The original plan was to create a simulcast partner for 97.5 WHTA, with the new 107.5 using similar call letters.


By the time it signed on the air on February 6, 1998, it became "Majic 107.5," broadcasting an R&B format with the WAMJ call sign. This was the original incarnation of WAMJ and the "Majic" brand which, at first, lasted only three years.


Smooth Jazz WJZZ-FM

On June 27, 2001, that format and the WAMJ call sign were sent to also-new 102.5 FM as "Grown Folks Radio." At the same time, 107.5 became WJZZ-FM "Smooth Jazz 107.5". The WHTA call letters were moved to "Hot 107.9" a couple of months later, with all three stations owned by Radio One.

Return of "Majic 107.5"

On January 28, 2009, WJZZ dropped smooth jazz, and returned to an Urban AC format, resurrecting the original branding "Majic 107.5." On February 16, 2009, the "Praise 97.5" format and WPZE call sign was moved to 102.5 FM. At that time, 97.5 FM began simulcasting WJZZ-FM as "Majic 107.5 | 97.5" (and would adopt the WUMJ call letters).

After seven and a half years at 102.5, the WAMJ call sign returned to 107.5 on February 27, 2009, and the old WAMJ moniker from its 102.5 days, "Grown Folks Radio," was dropped.

Atlanta's Best Mix of R&B

The call letter switch to WAMJ also led to a change in slogans to "Atlanta's Best Mix of R&B." This became the third incarnation of the urban AC format for WAMJ.

With the format shuffle, WAMJ incorporated more 1980s and 1990s R&B into its playlist. WAMJ also became the Atlanta home for the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show.
