WEEZ, carrying the on-air branding of "Rejoice 890," is an AM Gospel Music radio station licensed to Laurel, Mississippi serving the Hattiesburg, Mississippi Arbitron market.

History

WEEZ began as WQIS "Q-89" in 1985 when WQIS moved from 1260 khz to occupy the present transmitter tower, in Moselle, Mississippi; once occupied by sister station WNSL-FM. Q-89 was a daytime only R&B station serving Laurel and Hattiesburg; the station changed the format to easy listening and became "Kiss 890" in the 1990's. After Clear Channel aquired WQIS, the call letters were changed. The original WEEZ call letters were assigned to FM 99.3 as an Easy Listening/Soft Rock station operated by WAML in the 1980's. In the 1990's WEEZ changed to Gospel Music and became known as "Gospel 99". The call letters at 99.3 mhz changed to WHER "Eagle 99" playing Classic rock following the aquisition by Clear Channel.
