History Of WNDD
Thanks to Marc Tyll for this history of WNDD.
WNDD-FM began operations on February 12, 1992 as an Oldies station, WWGO-FM "GO 95.5". The station was built by Robert D. Stoher who owned the station until it was sold in 1994 to Allison Broadcasting. The oldies programming was provided by Satellite Music Network and remained in place until the station was sold. There were no local announcers on "Go 95.5" until 1994 when Allison Broadcasting acquired the station and the format was changed to Alternative/Punk Rock known as "Live 95.5" with the call letters WLVX. Previously the call letters WLVX belonged to an AM station in Islip, Long Island, New York. Allison sold WLVX to Hurricane Broadcasting in 1996. Hurricane Broadcasting  was headed by Bob Ganzak who revamped the programming to AOR/Rock. The ratings immediately shot up to place WIND-FM in the number two position. In 1997 Ganzak entered into an LMA* agreement with the owner of an FM in Gainesville. Under the arrangement, WNDT-FM 92.5 Gainesville would rebroadcast WNDD-FM 95.5. The concept was known as "Double Rock." Ganzak sold WNDD in 1998 to Dix Communications which already owned WOGK-FM 93.7. The format was changed to Classic Rock. A year later the format became Classic Hits, only to return back to Classic Rock another year later. The WIND-FM Network now consists of WNDD-FM 95.5 Silver Springs-Ocala, WNDT-FM 92.5 Alachua-Gainesville and WNDN-FM 107.9 Chiefland. All three stations collectively cover the entire Ocala/Gainesville metro and fringe markets consisting of 16-counties.
