This station started off as WATM 1590 in Atmore. It was originally on 1580, then moved to 1590 to get a power increase. Sold in the 70's and became WSKR (Kicker). Then became a mere AM stepchild of it's class C FM that evolved as a major Mobile/Pensacola player, WIZD in the 80's. Then it spun off to a religious group who renamed it WGYJ (We Give You Jesus), then moved from 1590 into the expanded band (in stereo) to 1620 as WPHG (We Proclaim His Glory).
Around April 2002, the station went dark. While silent, it changed calls from WPHG to WPNS to WBUB.
The station returned to the air in the fall of 2004, simulcasting WYCT-FM (Cat Country 98.7) from Pensacola. The calls later changed to WNRP. The city of license was moved from Atmore, AL to Gulf Breeze, FL. Also, the transmitter site has been moved, near the WDWR 1230 kHz site off Palafox. The station moved to a full-service local with country music, as well as news and traffic information.  In October 2007 the station flipped to an all news-talk format with an emphasis on local personalities.  In 2014 the station's owners acquired a translator, moved in from Milton, which was heard on the air testing in mid-July 2015, but off again after a lightning strike.
