Description: WAKB, known on-air as "Magic 100.9", is an urban adult contemporary radio station located in Augusta, Georgia. Licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the town of Hephzibah, the station broadcasts on 100.9 FM with a effective radiated power (ERP) of 25,000 kW.96.7 FM started in the late 1970s as WRNZ as a Top 40 outlet known as "Z96". The station changed frequencies from 96.7 to 96.9 and became WMJB in 1984 and WRDW-FM in 1985. In 1991, the station became WAKB. At first, it broadcast SMN's urban adult contemporary format known as "The Touch" but eventually went local in the late 1990s under the "Magic 96.9" name.WAKB was sold by Radio One in the mid 2000s Perry Broadcasting as the company decided to focus on larger markets. On Jan. 11, 2008 at 2:58 p.m., WAKB swapped frequencies with WTHB, which had been urban gospel. This happened 2 minutes before Doug Banks launch his afternoon show The Ride with Doug and DeDe began. The station then became Magic 100.9.In 2009, WAKB increased its power from 6,000 to 25,000 watts and moved its tower closer to the city in Hephzibah, Georgia. On December 30, 2009, WAKB dropped Doug Banks Show and had played music on the 3-7 pm time slot. In February 2010, recent WLXC midday host Tre' Taylor joined the station and began hosting afternoons.Just recently WAKB has brought Doug Banks back but instead of afternoons it airs in the evenings from 7-11 pm.
