The station at the time was partially owned by Raymond Parker. WAGY-FM was sold entirely to Parker, who with his wife, Bright G. Parker, formed "Gaffney Broadcasting" in the early 70's moved WAGY-FM into Gaffney pairing it with their AM WEAC, now known as 1500 WZZQ, and changing the call letters to WAGI-FM, increasing the power to 100 kW in the process.WAGI's longtime slogan was "The Upstate Power Station" and was nicknamed for many years by the locals as "Waggie".The station had featured a mixture of Country and Southern Gospel music for many years.WAGI broadcasted local as well as national news from the NBC Radio Network as well as local sporting events from Gaffney High School, namely Gaffney Indians football.
