WAEV (97.3 FM), known as "97-3 KISS FM", is a Savannah, Georgia, radio station that plays Top 40 (CHR) music, including pop, rock and hip-hop. It is owned and operated by Clear Channel Communications, which also owns WLVH-FM, WQBT, WSOK-AM, WTKS-AM, and WYKZ-FM in the Savannah market. Its transmitter is located near Bloomingdale, Georgia.


In 1978, the station flipped to Album Rock in response to WTOC-AM (then on 1290 AM) flipping from rock to pop music. 97.3 went by the name 97 Rock with the call sign WXLM. In 1983, the station flipped to light pop music known as Wave 97. When WXLM left the air, Savannah did not have a rock station until WIXV-FM picked up the format in 1986. The station evolved into a Hot AC station as Mix 97.3 during the late 1980s and early/mid 1990s. After several years of falling numbers and revenue in the late '90s, the station rebranded to Clear Channel's Top 40 KISS format in December 2001. After several months of further format "tweaking", the station moved into a more mainstream mix of music than most other KISS stations.

The station began streaming online on June 30, 2006.
