Came on the air in 1947 with the same calls it has today, which supposed stand for "WE Be Jammin'".  Was 250 watts in the late 50's, and affiliated with both Mutual and Keystone networks.  Radio-Locator shows this station as operating with non-standard hours.  The station was owned for a long time by Dennis Dunaway, who passed in July 2013.  Known as "Big D", Dennis ran the station and was a lifelong resident of Brewton.  His wife took over ownership of the station after his death, until April 2013 when ownership was transferred Chandler Dunaway.

In August 2020, Brewton Broadcasting Company transferred the license to the Augustus Foundation, a Texas-based non-profit who owns a few other stations around Alabama. The foundation was to pay $22,600; a programming agreement began in December 2020 until the purchase was to be paid off.  In late November 2020, Brewton Broadcasting Company filed to dismiss the license transfer.

On 14 July 2021 the FCC granted a Remain Silent Authority to the station after they cited the loss of their transmitter site.
