The HD2 digital subchannel, which airs alternative rock under the brand ALT 99.1, serves as the local affiliate for Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx, and airs coverage of the Cleveland Monsters.
WMMS-HD2 also simulcasts over Cleveland translator W256BT (99.1 FM).
A federal offense, the act nearly cost WMMS its broadcasting license.
radio station WHK – owned at that time by United Broadcasting Company, a subsidiary of Forest City Publishing, itself the parent company of The Plain Dealer – launched an experimental FM station under the callsign W8XUB at 107.1 megahertz (MHz).
Warren Zevon, John Mellencamp, Lou Reed, Tim Buckley, Peter Frampton, and a host of others performed on the program over the years, recordings of which are still widely available as bootlegs.
EC horror comics, Fritz the Cat, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and Looney Tunes – all served as inspirations for the "bird of prey with attitude" concept.
The station was known as "The Home of the Buzzard" at first.
Kemp and Lou "King" Kirby were signed by Metro Media.
The station briefly battled with WNCR of Nationwide Communications, itself filling the void created by the brief absence of WMMS on the rock scene.
Under Malrite ownership, WMMS would become an album-oriented rock (AOR) powerhouse, much in the same vein as its former Metro Media progressive rock siblings.
