Co-owned with Marianna country outlet WJAQ.  For years the station carried Citadel's Timeless Standards satellite format, but with that network shutting down, the owners opted to go with religious programming.  Also going by the wayside is the six day a week local R&B show hosted by local musician Melvin “Smokehouse” Moore.  The switch happened the first of February 2010.  The religious format eventually gave way to oldies again; the format was reported in February 2015 as being classic hits, with 60s, 70s and 80s music as "Oldies 101.7".  It's not known but assumed that the simulcast with WTOT AM was ongoing.  In April 2015, the license was transferred from MFR to Jackson Radio Group.  A month later it was reported that the AM had broken away to do urban contemporary music, but that hasn't been verified.  That AM was reported as off the air in April 2016.  As of January 2017, the AM and FM are both on and simulcasting the oldies format, which comes from Westwood One's "Good Time Oldies" feed.  In early February 2017, the AM and FM along with WJAQ were all knocked off the air due to storm damage to the AM transmitter tower, from a line of severe thunderstorms.  The tower was replaced in May 2017, and the station was back on before that month was up.

In the summer of 2019, a lawn maintenance crewman ran into the tower and knocked it down, taking the station off the air.
