History

In 2018, Alpha Media sold its Biloxi stations, including WANG, to Telesouth Communications. The sale was consummated on March 1, 2019, at a price of $2.5 million. On March 8, 2019, WANG ended its sports format simulcast with WTNI, and changed its format to classic country, branded as "103.5 The Possum". In June 2019, WTNI ended the remaining sports programming and also flipped to classic country, by resuming its simulcast of WANG. On December 22, 2020, translator station W278CE moved to 106.3, and WANG and WTNI flipped to a tourist information format as ''106.3 Casino Radio''. The stations primarily carry segments and advertising highlighting local casinos, restaurants, and other attractions in the Biloxi area.
