History

In June 1988, Wit FM was created in Bordeaux, by Jean-Louis Marin, former journalist of RMC and a member of the Sud Radio team. Wit FM took over the defunct frequencies of the Parisian radio station Hit FM, they have chosen a similar name to that of the Hit FM station in order to keep its predecessor's listeners. Sometime later, the station was acquired by Claude Bez, president of the sports club Girondins de Bordeaux.[1]

In 1989, Wit FM is sold for 75% to Sud Radio.

In 2006, the radio station along with Sud Radio was bought by the Orléans-based group Start, which renamed it to Sud Radio Groupe in 2010.
