History:

WIVK-FM signed on the air on December 16, 1965 as a simulcast of WIVK/850’s country music format. For several years the station aired a morning show hosted by Claude “The Cat” Tomlinson.

WIVK-FM lost the simulcast when the AM station switched to an adult contemporary format, becoming WHIG. Many of the people were not happy, so the adult contemporary format on WHIG was short-lived. The WIVK simulcast on 107.7 returned.

On September 1, 1988, WIVK 850’s signal was donated to the University of Tennessee and became a news/talk station as WUTK. WIVK moved to 990 on the same day and the simulcast continued.

The AM 990/FM 107.7 simulcast lasted almost 9 years when AM 990 went to a news/talk format as “NewsTalk 990 WNOX” and later “NewsTalk 99”. Today AM 990 is the Sports Animal which covers University of Tennessee athletics as well as sports across the nation. WIVK-FM 107.7 continues the country music format since they signed on back in 1965.
