Tri-State Inspirational Broadcasting
This station dates back to an original construction permit issued in 1986 to Tri-State Inspirational Broadcasting for a new noncommercial FM station on 91.3 MHz, licensed to Florence. It was originally assigned the WWOL call sign, but it appears it was discarded for WBHL before signing on in 1998.  The Broadcasting Yearbooks of the era list the format as a mix of Classical and Religious programming, or Beautiful Music mixed with Religious and Sports programming.  The station originally ran 30 kW from the same transmitter site used today.

In May 2000, the Contemporary Christian music format of 93.9 WFIX migrated to this station. In 2002 the station was granted a permit to raise power to 100 kW along with a boost in antenna height, with the requirement of a directional antenna system being used.  That facility signed on in the late summer of 2005.

The station was reported to have begun transmitting an RDS signal in early 2023.
