WRNX was sold to Clear Channel, and the old AAA format was blown up to
backfill the country format from "Kix" WPKX (97.9 Enfield) when that
station was moved south into the Hartford market (it's now WUCS
Windsor Locks).  They never changed the callsign.

Clear Channel paid Citadel (as then was) to change WMAS-FM's community
of license to Enfield to maintain the fiction of "first local service"
to that community.
