At midnight on December 26, 1991, WGAY changed branding to "Easy 99.5", and shifted towards mainstream AC.
During that era, WGAY-FM typically simulcast its AM sister station, 1050 WQMR "Washington's Quality Music Radio," continuing the WQMR programming after the AM station signed off. Television ads for the station in the 1970s and 1980s featured station programmer Bob Chandler relaxing in a recliner while listening to his station's light mix of music playing in the background.
Eventually the FM came to be considered the primary signal, and WGAY would often finish at number one in the Persons 12 Arbitron radio ratings for the Washington, D. During the 1980s, WGAY was reported to be then President Ronald Reagan's favorite radio station.
WGAY switched from the still ratings successful format permanently by the late 1990s, although not because its listeners were too few, but because demographically, they were getting too old and therefore less desirable for radio advertisers. on April 13, 1999, "Evergreen" by Barbra Streisand was faded out with a liner touting a change, bringing the end to WGAY.
After three days of simulcasting sister stations WTJM in New York City, KCMG in Los Angeles, and WUBT in Chicago, the station changed to an urban oldies format at p.m. At the time, they were co-owned with AM station WJMO in Cleveland, Ohio. However, with ratings on the decline due to the arguable burnout factor of the music, combined with competition from WBIG-FM (which at the time played an oldies format; they now play a classic rock format), Clear Channel Communications (now i Heart Media) (who acquired the station in 2000 due to a merger with AMFM Media and had dropped the format in other markets due to similar factors) decided to take the station in a different direction.
