Description: WMMJ is a top rated station Urban Adult Contemporary radio station owned by Radio One in the Washington, D.C. market. It is licensed to Bethesda, but its transmitter is located in Tenleytown. During the sixties, seventies, and early eighties, the station had been home to the original "progressive rock" formatted WHFS, who later migrated to the higher powered Annapolis Maryland based 99.1 frequency.The WMMJ calls were originally used on current radio station WXRL in Lancaster, New York from its sign-on in 1965 until 1970.In 1987, Cathy Hughes purchased WMMJ and changed the format from easy listening to Urban Oldies as, "Majic 102.3". The station has basically maintained this format for 18 years with it skewing its format more toward the 25-54 demographic as an Urban Adult Contemporary. During that time, Majic 102.3 has become synonymous with its Urban Oldies format in the African-American community. Majic has consistently been one of the market's leaders delivering Washington's most loyal audience. In 1999, WMMJ acquired the syndication rights of the Tom Joyner Morning Show from rival Urban AC, WHUR, and has maintained it ever since. In the summer of 2008, it also became home to Mo'Nique in the afternoon until March 18, 2009.On June 23, 2010, WMMJ's live airstaff was fired from their jobs in a surprise shakeup despite the station posted its best numbers in the Washington Arbitrons. The shakeup began in April 2010, when its GM and PD were let go. Recently, WMMJ hired former WHUR morning man John Monds to be the new afternoon drive personality from 3-7PM and Courtney Hicks as the new midday personality from 10AM-3PM.WMMJ logo from 2004 to July 2010
