What does WAYE mean?
- WAYE is a radio station broadcasting a Regional Mexican format. Licensed to Birmingham, Alabama, USA, the station serves the Birmingham market. The station is currently owned by Dulce and Maria Rivera, through licensee Rivera Communications, LLC, and features programing from Westwood One. The station signed on in 1949 using the call letters WEDR. The original president of the company that owned the station was J.L. Doss, who previously had owned WJLD, another Birmingham station. For much of the station's early history, it broadcast only during daytime hours. At least by 1960, the station changed its call letters to WEZB, taking the programming and intellectual property from another station in the Birmingham market. In 1963 the station was sold and changed its call letters to WAQY and was known on the air as "Wacky 1220". It changed formats, becoming a Top 40 station and putting it in competition against three other stations that were established in the format: WSGN, WVOK, and WYDE.
