The station changed callsigns to WIXV on July 15, 1983.
The station started as in 1972 as WSGF ("95SGF"), a Top 40-leaning adult contemporary station. The station was highly successful against other competitors such as 1400 AM and Z102. By 1983, seeing the gap left by Wave 97 when they dropped album rock earlier that year, WSGF had become WIXV and added more hard rock to the playlist.
In 1986 I-95 became Savannah's full-time rock station. Bringing in legendary programmers like Bill Weston, Virgil Thompson, and Don Scott. Since then WIXV has been a hybrid mix of classic and newer rock.
