WNSR

The station's ratings would continue to be strong through the years, but by 1985, the station's management noticed that their demographics skewed old. So, on April 17, 1986, the station switched to a gold-based adult contemporary format with the call letters WNSR (for "soft rock").

By 1990, the station became known as "Mix 105", and shifted to more of a hot adult contemporary format, cutting back on (but still playing) 1960s music, focusing on 1970s, 1980s and current hits. By 1992, when the station changed its call letters to WMXV, the 1960s hits were gone, and more recent music was added.

WDBZ

1996–1997

On November 13, 1996, the Hot AC format at WMXV abruptly ended, and after a day of playing music from Broadway musicals, the station switched formats to an adult-friendly modern rock (technically called "Modern AC") format as WDBZ ("The Buzz").
