WOWI

102.9 FM WOWI (originally pronounced on-air as "Wow-Wee") began in Norfolk, Virginia in 1970 with a Progressive/Freeform blend of rock, country, blues and jazz.  This "Hot 103" sticker probably dates to around the mid-1980s when WOWI had switched to an Urban Contemorary format.  The station still carries this same format but is now branded as "103 Jamz".
